School Hosts Give Kids A Smile

Feb. 4, 2017

The School of Dental Medicine hosted the annual Give Kids A Smile event on February 4, in conjunction with the Southern Nevada Dental Society and other community partners. The event provides free dental examinations, x-rays, cleanings, treatments, and oral hygiene education to children who have limited or no access to regular dental care. Local television news stations attended the event, which the school has hosted since 2006, and shared stories of what they witnessed. Each affiliate - ABC, NBC, and CBS - aired stories during newscasts on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, which contained comments from Dr. Wendy Woodall, and school alumnae Dr. Emily Ishkanian.
