Families lacking dental insurance will still have a reason to smile on Monday with Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County’s “Give Kids A Smile” day.
Beginning at 8 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 3 at 205 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N. and 8751 Ulmerton Rd., Largo, free dental services until 5 p.m. including x-rays and exams will be provided to low-income children.
Volunteer dentists and hygienists will treat eligible children younger than 18 on a first-come, first-served basis. No pre-registration is required, but parents or guardians accompanying the minor will be asked to fill out a form to verify that the family’s income is less than 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. For a family of four, the annual income threshold is $47,100. Children who need additional dental services will receive an appointment for follow-up work at no cost.
