WHAT: UM School of Dentistry’s Give Kids A Smile Day® provides essential oral health care and education to children from Jackson Public Schools, the north unit of the Boys and Girls Club of Mississippi and Stewpot Homeless Shelter after-school programs.
WHEN: Monday, Feb. 5, 9-11 a.m.
WHERE: School of Dentistry, 2500 North State St., Jackson, Miss.
WHY: Give Kids A Smile day has been moved to Monday, kicking off the 2nd Annual UMMC Dental Mission Week. The schedule change will allow parents to bring children back for free follow-up dental work through the rest of the week, a first in the 14 years that the School of Dentistry has participated in the American Dental Association’s Give Kids A Smile Day.
Give Kids A Smile day will again be a full day of care serving three elementary schools, Mississippi Boys and Girls Clubs and Stewpot Community Services after-school care.
Sen. Hillman Frazier is scheduled to visit the dental school during Monday’s activities.
