Give Kids a Smile: St. Louis-launched initiative improves lives of thousands

    Every year, children go to bed in pain, struggle in school and are otherwise uncomfortable due to a lack of consistent or no dental care. A St. Louis dentist co-founded an organization that aimed to tackle that problem called “Give Kids a Smile”. The American Dental Association adopted it and now kids all over the United States are getting dental help – for free. The St. Louis group also now trains other dentists how to hold large-group dental clinics.
