February is National Children's Dental Health Month and Southern University at Shreveport's Dental Hygiene Program are teaming up to celebrate "Give Kids a Smile" Day Friday with free screenings and sealants to elementary school children.
It will take place in the Dental Hygiene Clinic at the SUSLA Metro Center, 610 Texas Street in downtown Shreveport from 9:00a.m. to 12:00p.m., Friday, February 7th.
It's an annual event in which area dentists provide screenings while SUSLA Dental Hygiene students provide free sealants to elementary school children.
The dentists select the elementary school. This year, they selected Sunset Acres Elementary School. SUSLA's Dental Hygiene students will also provide fun dental related education while the kids wait their turn for an exam and sealants.
