BACKGROUND:
This annual community event has been held for more than a decade. The Dugoni School of Dentistry participates in the nationwide “Give Kids a Smile” program to serve local children and families, including those who may not have access to basic dental care. “Give Kids a Smile” was started by the American Dental Association in 2003 as a way to encourage dentists to connect with their communities by providing dental services to underserved children. These special events offer children and families the opportunity to learn about oral health, get questions answered and have fun. The events also help raise awareness about the important role of ongoing dental care.

Why is Childhood Dental Care So Important?
Facts about children’s oral health in California
• Tooth decay is the most common chronic illness among school-age children, five times more common than childhood asthma.
• 37 percent of 2- and 3-year-olds in California have never been to the dentist. These rates are even lower for California’s poorest children.
• By kindergarten, over 50 percent of children in California have already experienced dental decay and 28 percent have untreated decay.
• California kids miss an estimated 874,000 school days each year from dental problems.
• Children who reported having recent tooth pain were four times more likely to have a low grade point average.
