A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ATSU-ASDOH) and the Arizona Dental Foundation (ADF) provided services to more than 200 underserved elementary school children from the Mesa Public School District at the ASDOH Dental Clinic in Mesa on April 17. The children received free dental care as part of Give Kids a Smile®.
From 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., ASDOH dental students and volunteer dentists provided basic dental services to children including cleanings, fillings, and more complex procedures, all at no charge. In addition to dental care, the kids experienced dental education, costumed entertainment, and organized games, including inflatables provided by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
