U of M dental students host free clinic for kids [Video]

For Children’s Dental Health Month, students at the U’s School of Dentistry created a special clinic to give kids healthy smiles.

MINNEAPOLIS — In February, the U of M’s School of Dentistry is helping to “Give Kids a Smile.” 

The U has been part of the national “Give Kids a Smile” event for 20 years with dental students leading the charge.

Earlier this month, students treated more than 60 young patients in one day. They did everything from dental work to finding grants to pay for care for patients with no insurance.

We spoke with faculty about the lengths these students go to to serve the community and give back. 

“We know that if they’re doing this in such magnitude here while they are in school, I just look forward to the big things they are going to do after they graduate,” said Dr. Teresa Fong, Pre Doctoral Clinical Director at the division of pediatric dentistry at the University of Minnesota.
