On Saturday, in honor of National Children’s Dental Health Month, Kaiser Permanente Northwest will Give Kids a Smile. It’s a free dental care day for uninsured and underinsured children in the greater Portland area.
Oral health care is very important for overall wellness. Cavities and tooth decay, known as ‘caries,’ are the most chronic childhood illnesses. We want all of our children to start out life with healthy, pain-free teeth. Children who receive dental sealants are significantly less likely to need fillings in the next three years.
Kaiser’s free services include dental sealants, vaccinations, and fluoride varnishes.
Clinics are open to the public from 8 am to 1 pm. Check out Kaiser Permanente Dental’s website for more information and locations.
