Students at Our Lady Of Grace receive free dental cleanings, exams
Smile New York offered free cleanings and exams to over 200 students at a school in Wakefield.
Students at Our Lady of Grace learned how to keep their smiles healthy. Smile New York returns to the school every six months and has been returning for the last five years.
Its goal is to make sure kids' dental health is up to date while also making sure the experience is a little less nerve-racking.
"Dental care is so expensive even for myself, so it's great to bring the dentist to the school. It takes away from the parents having to take them outside of school," said Principal Richard Helmrich.
The kids left with a new toothbrush, a report card to show their parents, and a little lesson on how to properly care for their pearly whites.
