Give Kids A Smile NYC 2024 to Provide Free Dental Care for Hundreds of Children in NYC

(EZ Newswire)

NEW YORK, NY -- The New York County Dental Society is holding its American Dental Association award-winning Give Kids A Smile NYC event on Friday, February 2, 2024. District 4 East Harlem schools are eager to have the event back in their schools after holding virtual programs during the height of the pandemic. This major event will occur at six school sites, reflecting the participation of nine schools. It is estimated that 2,400 lower, middle, and upper children will receive much-needed oral hygiene education. An overwhelming majority of those students will also obtain free dental screenings, cavity-preventing fluoride, oral hygiene instructions, and dietary guidance all in a fun and festive atmosphere. The need will be great as many students may have not seen an oral-health professional during the pandemic. 
Give Kids A Smile NYC, now in its 9th year, has greatly influenced oral healthcare with the policymakers in our area including former City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine,State Senator Robert Rodriguez and Congressman Adriano Espaillat, who have all supported our program.Come see for yourself the quality of this community contribution from the New York County Dental Society!
