Every year, Smile Partners screens and treats thousands of children in the Puget Sound Area to help them avoid the debilitating affects of tooth decay.
Our teams of professional dentists, hygienists and site coordinators go into schools to offer preventative dental services to low-income kids.
Tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease, affecting almost six out of ten children by third grade.
Often, it keeps children out of school and interferes with learning.
low-income homes can have 3 times times the number of cavities
peers -- yet most don't receive dental care.
Many providers don't accept
Medicaid coverage, and many families have no dental insurance at all.
