North Boulder Dental Group is delighted to offer free dental services for qualifying children during the annual Give Kids a Smile Day on Friday, February 5th.

As part of our commitment to the community, we’ll be offering dental check-ups, screenings, cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants, and oral health education to qualifying children. Our goal is to help children avoid dental disease and make it easier for them sleep, eat, concentrate, and smile better!

This national program, supported by the American Dental Association Foundation, is a proactive effort to provide children from low-income families with dental needs and access to essential dental care. Free services are offered by thousands of dentists and dental team staff each year to serve hundreds of thousands of children across the country.

To qualify for free services and a Give Kids a Smile appointment, the child must be age 17 years old or younger, the child’s family must be low-income, unable to afford dental care, and have no dental insurance, and the child must have transportation and arrive on time for the appointment.

For more information or to set up an appointment, please contact North Boulder Dental Group at (303) 447-1042.

We’re grateful for the opportunity to live, work, and serve patients in Boulder County. As part of the North Boulder Dental Group philosophy, we strive to not only be involved in our local area, but even more important, provide dental philanthropy to the larger Boulder County community.

This year we have continued to be active in bringing this part of our mission to life, providing over $35,000 worth of free dental services to some excellent, local organizations!

Give Kids a Smile

north-boulder-dental-give-kids-a-smileThis national program is sponsored by the American Dental Association and provides underserved children with free oral health services. We’re big believers in the importance of dental care from a young age and how it can pave a path to lifelong wellness.

In 2015, our practice was able to help directly several children in the Boulder Valley School District. By working with Give Kids a Smile, we were able to provide over $2200 worth of free dental care and help start these kids on the right road to good oral health!

Colorado Mission of Mercy

Services are available in a large-scale clinic environment at special events held during the year.

We were proud to be part of this year’s large clinic event held in August and serve many patients in need of dental services. The clinic, overall, serves thousands of people over a two-day period providing cleanings, fillings, temporary dental appliances, extractions, and more.
