Improve Children’s Dental Health by Participating in a Dental Kit Assembly, Oct. 4

  • Print
Description:

United Way of Southern Nevada is helping local children and families with their dental health by holding a Dental Kit Assembly. Quality dental care is essential to insure a child’s overall well-being. Tooth decay remains the single most common chronic disease among children. Dental disease can impact all aspects of children’s lives, from their nutrition and sleep habits to their educational performance and self-esteem. With 36 percent of children living with untreated tooth decay, nine percent in dental pain and 65 percent of children uninsured and without health care resources, the dental hygiene drive will help to provide critical dental hygiene items to local children and families. Families are welcome as volunteers create “Smile” Kits at United Way for local families and children. This meaningful volunteer opportunity includes fun-filled fall activities for children; the opportunity to donate toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and toothbrush covers and all volunteers receive water, healthy snacks and LIVE UNITED t-shirts.
