The Erie Community College School of Dental Hygiene will host Give Kids a Smile Day on Friday at its home on the North Campus, 6025 Main St., Amherst.
Cleanings, X-rays and preventative services will be provided free to those who register beforehand. To make an appointment, call 851-1336.
The special event will be held in collaboration with the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. If the dental team at ECC determines that a child needs fillings, extractions or additional dental work, members will arrange to have them treated at a similar event a week later at the UB School of Dental Medicine.
Parents are welcome to make appointments for children ages 1 to 17.
Those interested in making an appointment between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Feb. 9 at the UB dental school, located on the South Campus on Main Street in Buffalo, may call that school directly at 829-2780.
