IRVINE, Calif. /PRNewswire/ -- More than 240 Smile Generation-trusted dental offices served their local communities on August 24, 2013, by participating in the third annual Smile Generation Serve Day. The clinicians and dental care teams provided donated dentistry to community members who would not otherwise have access to dental care, and were able to help more than 1,600 people during this community outreach event.
The dental offices teamed up with local organizations and community partners, such as youth centers, nonprofit organizations and churches, to identify individuals that were in need of basic dental care.
"Smile Generation Serve Day is a day for giving back to the community," said We Serve Manager Kyle Guerin. "Having access to dental care is critical for a patient's overall health. By opening up their practices to help those who may not otherwise have access to dental care, the Smile Generation-trusted dentists are confirming their commitment to their community members and their oral health."
Patients received everything from cleanings, exams, and digital X-rays to extractions, implants and restorations. The supplies for the treatments were donated by Henry Schein® Dental. Henry Schein is the largest provider of health care products and services to office-based practitioners.
