Hyannis, MA – The dental care team at Harbor Community Health Center will offer free dental services to children ages 1-17 during the Give Kids A Smile event on Saturday, February 8.  Free services will be available 8:00 am -12:00 pm by appointment only and will include dental exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and sealants.

Parents and caregivers should call (508) 778-5420 and say they would like to make an appointment during Give Kids A Smile.  Harbor Community Health Center – Hyannis is located at 735 Attucks Lane in Hyannis and is part of Harbor Health, a non-profit organization with community health center locations in Boston, the South Shore, and Cape Cod.

“During Harbor’s Give Kids A Smile event, we hope to give kids in our local community the chance to come in to see a dentist and get the care they need to keep their teeth healthy and strong,” explained Dr. Matt Horan, executive director of dental services at Harbor Health. 

“We’ll also use the opportunity to help parents and caregivers learn about the resources we offer to help apply for insurance and other programs to make sure everyone in the family continues to maintain good oral and overall health,” Dr. Horan said.

Give Kids A Smile is a national program of the American Dental Association aimed at raising awareness about the importance of oral health to overall health, and the staggering need that exists among millions of children who go without dental care.  Thousands of dentists and volunteers across the country will give their time to provide free oral health education, screenings, and treatment to underserved children.  Annual program events kick off during National Children’s Dental Health Month in February.
