Marshall Health to host free dental clinic for uninsured children Feb. 28

2/14/2020


HUNTINGTON, W.Va. Marshall Dentistry & Oral Surgery is once again hosting a Give Kids A Smile® dental clinic. Uninsured children can receive free dental services by appointment from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m Friday, Feb. 28 at Marshall Dentisty, which is located at 1616 13th Avenue, Suite 200, in the Fairfield Building in Huntington.

Give Kids A Smile® is a national initiative founded the American Dental Association (ADA). This annual volunteer event helps underserved children who aren’t getting the oral health care they need. This is the second year Marshall Health has hosted a free dental clinic during National Children’s Dental Health Month.

Joining Drs. Raj Khanna, William Myers, Joey Roy and Malav Shah of Marshall Dentistry & Oral Surgery for the event will be several staff from the dental offices of James Butler, James Hall and Thomas Tyree.

“This event not only provides much needed dental care, it also provides an opportunity to educate kids and their parents/guardians about the importance of oral hygiene,” said Raj K. Khanna, DMD, M.D., chair of the department of dentistry, oral & maxillofacial surgery at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine.

Marshall Dentistry’s Give Kids A Smile® event is open to any child 18 years of age and younger from a low-income family with no dental insurance. Patients will be seen by appointment only. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call Marshall Dentistry & Oral Surgery at 304-691-1247.
