UH Rainbow Babies & Children's is offering patients free dental cleanings on National Give Kids a Smile Day, February 3

Wednesday, February 01, 2023
CLEVELAND, Ohio – February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. The celebration began as a one-day event in Cleveland, Ohio, on Feb. 3, 1941. Since then, the observance has grown into a nationwide program to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. Pediatric dentists and pediatricians at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s encourage families to develop good dental hygiene habits with their children by age one for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.

To kick-off Children’s Dental Health Month, UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Ahuja Center for Women & Children is offering free dental exams, cleanings, x-rays, and sealants to existing pediatric patients on Friday, Feb. 3, National Give Kids A Smile Day. Pediatric patients will be seen in the dental clinic at UH Rainbow Ahuja Center for Women & Children and the Ronald McDonald House Charities’ CareMobile.

Media is invited to the UH Rainbow Ahuja Center (5805 Euclid Avenue) from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. to capture the event, speak with pediatric dental and nutrition experts, and participating families. In addition to pediatric dental care, the event will include nutrition education from the department of Nutrition and Dietetics, and children’s books and games for the families.
