By Yvette Crenshaw

Community Health Center of New Britain in New Britain, CT, will offer free dental services to children in honor of “Give Kids A Smile Day,” February 4, 2011 at New Britain High School and other local private dental offices. The services will be offered to those children with either Healthcare for Uninsured Kids and Youth (HUSKY) or no dental insurance.

Children who participate in the program will receive various services such as free cleanings, exams, fillings, fluoride, etc. According to a recent press release, each year on the first Friday in February, dentists nationwide participate in the Give Kids A Smile Day program to ensure that children in underserved communities have an opportunity to get proper dental care and leave with a bigger and brighter smile.
