But unhealthy smiles are not a Ball at all!
Tooth decay can reach any child, but children from low-income families suffer its effects (like pain, problems with eating and speech development, and missed school hours) more frequently and face greater barriers to accessing quality care than other children.
Fortunately, tooth decay is
treatable and preventable.
So don't shop for a gown, rent a tux, or call the babysitter. Instead, trade your dancing shoes for your fuzzy slippers and join us in a celebration of smiles at home.
Kids Smiles provides children with access to dental care and health empowerment education who otherwise might not receive it. Last year, more than 18,000 children were treated in our dental centers, and more than 22,000 children and parents received education to help them keep their smiles healthy.
That is something to celebrate!
Your gift will go further to support the children in need in our community when you donate what you would have spent on a night out to Kids Smiles, and we know that night at home to support children's healthy smiles will have you grinning from ear to ear!
We look forward to (not) seeing you at the 2015 Kids Smiles UnBall!
