On March 8th, Children’s Friend held a dental fair for Head Start, Early Head Start and WIC families. Crafts and activities, as well as story time helped to promote importance of good oral health and make visits to the dentist less scary for our little ones. Children received checkups from the Samuel Sinclair Dental Center and there was even a special appearance by the Tooth Fairy.
Children’s Friend would like to thank the Global Shapers Providence for collecting donations of children’s toothbrushes and supplies through their Mission: Healthy Smile program. And a special thanks to our staff, who made this day special for our families, CVS Health, who continues to provide dental supplies to our families, and to our partners, Samuel Sinclair Dental Center, for providing essential dental services to our families.
With oral disease ranked as the primary chronic disease among children in the U.S., our partnership with the Samuel Sinclair Dental Center helps to ensure that our families have access to critically important oral health care from an early age.
