NEW CASTLE — Refresh Dental in New Castle will participate in the annual Give Kids A Smile Day Feb. 2.

The American Dental Association began Give Kids A Smile in 2003 to provide underserved children with dental screenings, education and treatment. Each year more than 15,000 events benefit nearly 500,000 children across the country.

Refresh Dental provider Sara Ruby said, “We are pleased to be able to assist the youngest members of our community with their dental care needs. Nearly one in four children aged 2 to 11 years old have untreated cavities in their baby teeth and many receive no dental care at all throughout the year. There is a huge need to raise awareness of the epidemic of untreated dental disease.”

Refresh Dental is located in Suite A at 2623 Wilmington Road. More information or appointments for Give Kids A Smile are available by calling (724) 658-0822.
