Give a kid a smile was a huge success! Thanks go out to Elizabeth Tronolone, chairmen of the Dental Hygiene Program, Joanne Juan, clinic secretary, Ingrid Beaver, one of the volunteers along with a couple of other nurses, students and doctors.

Give a kid a smile is a national event that is offered by the Toledo Dental Society (TDS). It is held once a year on the first Friday in February. They provide and promote free dentistry to families who are at risk but might not to able to afford dental care for their children.

They offered x-rays, cleanings, and fillings for all children ranging from ages 6 mos. to 18 yrs. of age. TDS has truly left children and parents both with smiles, children because they have a brighter healthier smile and parents because they know their child now has a healthy smile.
