Kentucky Kids Get Free Dental

Dentists and other dental professionals gathered at HealthPoint Family Care in Kentucky last week to provide free dental treatments for kids from families who had no dental insurance.

Dental treatments provided included cleanings, x-rays, dental sealants for teeth, and more to the value of almost $10,000 in total.

Almost half of Kentucky’s kids suffer from tooth decay by the age of five, and most of those cases go untreated.

Good oral hygiene in children is a major problem as the kids either stay away from school or are not able to learn effectively when they are suffering from dental problems such as toothache.
