Clinic to give free dental care to children

(KMOV) – Going to the dentist can be an unpleasant necessity to some but for some children it is a luxury that their families can’t afford.

The luxury of going to the dentist will become free to hundreds of children at the “Give Kids a Smile” clinic at St. Louis University next month.  Around 200 dentists and technicians will be at the clinic to provide the free care to the underprivileged children.

“The issues today with the economy is so many kids falling below the poverty line and dentistry is one of the things that tends to go first,” Doctor Thomas Flavin, who started the event 12 years ago, said. 
 
Delta Dental Health Theater is also offering low-cost clinics in February in addition to the SLU clinic.
