Free Dental Care Provided to Minnesota Children In Need

Minnesota Dental Association's Give Kids a Smile program to host free dental clincis.

On Feb. 5 and 6, dentists will volunteer their time to help thousands of low-income children who are not getting the dental care they need and deserve. Each year, the program provides about $1.7 million worth of free care to more than 5,000 children. More than 200 clinics across the state participate. Again this year, the MDA is asking for your help. Please tell families aboutGive Kids a Smile and help ensure they know how to make an appointment for their child.

Here is what families should know about Give Kids a Smile:

  • After Jan. 1, parents can find local participating dental offices by visiting the MDA Web site or calling United Way 2-1-1 (just dial 211). Cell phone users can call 651-291-0211. Toll free is 1-800-543-7709. Parents then call the dental office to make an appointment.
  • Each child must have an appointment and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
    Services vary from clinic to clinic. When calling to make an appointment, we encourage parents to talk with the clinic about any specific needs or concerns.
  • Families are asked to respect the clinic's time and dedication. For every child who doesn't show up for his or her appointment, another child could have been helped. If the family must cancel, they should give the clinic at least a day's notice.
  • In the weeks before the child's appointment, families or teachers should read age-appropriate books to familiarize the child with what to expect during their dental exam. School or community libraries should have some good selections.
  • On the day before the appointment, families should drive by the dental clinic together with their child. Just driving past the clinic helps ensure families know where the clinic is located and helps the child visualize - and feel more confident about - where he or she will visit the dentist.


To Promote the program: You can help spread the word about Give Kids a Smile in your community through the MDA Web site, where you will find classroom take-home fliers as well as color fliers. You are invited to download, print and distribute these materials, and also pass this information with your networks. If you have any questions, contact the MDA at 612-767-8400 or e-mail gkas@mndental.org.
