NorthShore Health Centers, along with thousands of dentists across the country, are taking time to help underserved children get the oral health care they need.

On Friday, Feb. 1, NorthShore will be offering discounted dental service from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This promotion is part of “Give Kids a Smile Day,” a program launched nationally by the American Dental Association in 2003. Over the last 13 years, more than five million underserved children have received free oral health services due to this program.

As part of NorthShore’s “Give Kids a Smile” services, uninsured children up to age 17 will receive a free dental exam, free x-rays, free cleaning, a free electric spin brush and toothpaste, and a free fluoride treatment.

NorthShore Health Center is a not-for-profit community based health and education center providing medical, dental and eye care services to everyone including the uninsured and underinsured community of Northwest Indiana. Its mission is to ensure that each individual has a medical home and access to the highest quality healthcare, regardless of gender, age, race, social or cultural standing and/or ability to pay.

Visit us at any of the four dental locations at 6450 U.S. Highway 6 in Portage, 3099 Central Ave. in Lake Station, 6091 Broadway in Merrillville, or 6920 Indianapolis Blvd. in Hammond. Space is limited; call today to schedule an appointment.
