Nearly 700 children will have the opportunity to receive a free dental screening for the children of Boys & Girls Club of Benton County. The screenings will be held at three facilities. The screenings will educate children on the importance of healthy oral habits and inspire good habits. A licensed hygienist will perform the screening and teach children proper flossing, brushing and rinsing. Kids that need additional treatment will be referred to their personal dentist or non-profit care.
A consent form signed by a parent will be required for all children to be eligible for the free screening. Samples will be provided to the parents of children participating in the screenings. Volunteers will be at each club during the screenings to make this a fun and exciting experience for the children by providing organized activities. Below is a schedule of the various screenings dates, times and Club locations.
