Wyandotte Family Dental Taking Appointments for Give Kids a Smile

It's part of a free national program to help kids ages 3-18 whose families are without dental insurance; appointments are for Feb. 8, 2013.

Open wide, and show those pearly whites. Kids ages 3-18 are already getting signed up for the 2013 Give Kids a Smile program at Wyandotte Family Dental, said dental receptionist Angela Baxter.

The free program is for children whose families are without dental insurance, Baxter said. Dr. Susan Cleereman, D.D.S., and her staff are volunteering their time from 9:15 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Feb. 8, 2013 for Give Kids a Smile, which is a national program.

In the four years Wyandotte Family Dental has participated in the program, the staff has helped more than 80 kids. They usually see close to 20 children each time, Baxter said.

Give Kids a Smile helps prevent future cavities, she said. Services include free dental cleanings and cavity fillings, with fillings sometimes scheduled for a different date, she said.

Wyandotte Family Dental helps kids from Wyandotte and surrounding areas through Give Kids a Smile. Families can sign up by calling (734) 282-2019 to schedule an appointment on Friday, Feb. 8 between 9:15 a.m. and 1 p.m.
