Caring for Our Communities

The caring and committed dental staff of Katahdin Valley Health Center donate their time every year to the Give Kids a Smile event, offering FREE dental care to uninsured children under the age of 18. Give Kids a Smile is the cornerstone of National Children’s Dental Health Month and sponsored by the American Dental Association in order to raise awareness of the importance of good oral health. In 2016, KVHC provided over $10,217.00 worth of dental care to 34 children who had signed up for the events. Services ranged from exams, dental x-rays, and cleanings to preventive fluoride treatments, sealants, fillings, and extractions. Below are some pictures taken during these important community events.
