Day of Free Dental Care for Children in Exeter

Saturday, February 8, 9am – 12pm

Core Physicians' Pediatric Dentistry will once again be hosting a Give Kids A Smile® event on Saturday, February 8, 9am – 12pm at their office at 5 Hampton Road, Exeter, NH to provide underserved children with free dental services. Children ages 1-14 may be brought in by a parent or guardian without an appointment for free dental exams and cleanings.

“This is the fifth year that our dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants and administrative personnel have come together to volunteer our time for a day to help local children who may not otherwise have an opportunity to see a dentist,” said Jennifer Creem, DMD, MS of Core Pediatric Dentistry. “Dental care is so important to a child’s overall health.”

Nearly one in five children aged 5 to 12 years old has untreated cavities in their baby teeth, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The American Dental Association (ADA) launched the Give Kids A Smile program nationally in 2003 as a way for dentists to join with others in the community to provide dental services to underserved children.
