Record-breaking smiles

ATSU-ASDOH holds annual Give Kids A Smile

On Friday, Feb. 22, ATSU-ASDOH and the Arizona Dental Foundation hosted the annual Give Kids A Smile event. Nearly 600 uninsured and underinsured children received free dental care, a new record for the School. Service provided at this year’s event was valued at close to $200,000.

Dental care was provided by ATSU-ASDOH students, faculty, and alumni, as well as local volunteer dentists. Children ages 6-12 from Mesa Public Schools, Apache Junction Unified School District, and community organizations were prescreened to receive cleanings, fillings, sealants, and extractions. As pictured above, many dental students dressed as superheroes and other fictional characters to put kids at ease as they received care.

Jaiden Mercer, D3, co-chair of Give Kids A Smile, says, “The amount of care provided was astounding, a record year for the event and true example of how powerful teamwork and collaboration between healthcare providers can be.”
