The American Dental Association, Henry Schein, Inc. and 3M ESIPE are teaming up with Greg Biffle and Roush Fenway racing to promote dental health for kids this weekend during the Bank of America 500. Biffle’s No. 16 car and uniform will be sporting a Give Kids a Smile logo while the program will be giving free dental evaluations in the “Kid Zone” next to the “Fan Zone” outside of the track on Saturday from 11:00 AM through 4:00 PM.
Volunteer dentists and other dental professionals will underserved children free dental evaluations, fluoride treatments, and dental sealants at this unique event. Children will receive digital X-rays embedded in a wristband as their badge of honor for participating. The event also is an advance celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Give Kids a Smile program next year. This event follows the oral health car education event held March 12th during NASCAR Speedfest at Charlotte Motor Speedway. 7,000 children participated in that event, receiving a “Speedfest Kit” that included a oral health tip card, a toothbrush, Colgate toothpaste and Henry Schein dental floss.
In its ninth year the Give Kids a Smile program has had more than 12,000 dentists participate nationwide, providing free oral health care to more than 400,000 underserved kids.
