KIMBERLING CITY, Mo. -- Kids in Kimberling City received a day of free dental care on Tuesday.

The Tri-Lakes Community Health Center celebrated Give Kids a Smile Day for uninsured children.

Those who came in received an exam, x-ray, a cleaning, fluoride treatment, fillings and extractions.

The event creates awareness for dental services for those in need.

"Hopefully if we can get them while they're small, when they get older then they won't have cavities and bad teeth as they're growing up,” says dentist Wes Mullens. “The key is to get them while they're small and hopefully they will carry that through the rest of their life."


Give Kids a Smile Day is a nationwide event sponsored by the American Dental Association.
