UDM Dental School Provides Free Services For Children On Saturday

DETROIT (WWJ) – Many children in Detroit will have a lot more to smile about. With the help of dentists, dental hygienists, faculty, staff and students, the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry will provide free oral health care services to more than 150 children from low-income families on Saturday, Feb. 4.

The “Give Kids a Smile” program has been a success for the past decade.

Mert Aksu, Dean of the School of Dentistry, said UDM’s mission is to help others, with the dental clinic often providing care to the homeless, elderly and AIDS patients.

“Give Kids A Smile” is a program designed for children, ages four through 16. After each screening, participants will take home a free oral health kit containing toothpaste, floss… and a big smile.

Free oral health care services will be provided from from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at UDM’s new Corktown Campus. Find more information at dental.udmercy.edu.
