Little Rock dentists offering free care day to Ark. children

Kool Smiles’ third annual “Sharing Smiles Day” gives kids a reason to smile

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Kool Smiles is hosting their third annual "Sharing Smiles" this weekend.

Children in Little Rock will be able to receive dental treatments at no cost during Sharing Smiles Day, an annual day of free dental care hosted by children’s dental provider Kool Smiles on Sunday, May 21.

“At Kool Smiles, we believe every child should have a dentist,” said Dr. Brad Bryan, Managing Dental Director for Kool Smiles. “While we’re proud to accept a wide range of insurance plans, including Medicaid and TRICARE, we also know there are children in our community who do not have dental insurance and whose parents can’t afford to pay out of pocket for needed dental treatments. Sharing Smiles Day is an opportunity for our dentists and staff to give back to the community and bring smiles to children in need.”

Kool Smiles’ dentists will provide free dental care to area children up to 18 years of age from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 21 at the 2000 S. University Avenue location in Little Rock.

Available treatments will include dental exams, limited emergency care, extractions and restorative care.

A limited number of appointments are available. Parents are strongly encouraged to register their children on the Kool Smiles website in advance of the event. You can do that by clicking here.

The dentists will be working hard to see all patients but treatment is on a first-come, first-served basis and pre-registration does not guarantee we will be able to treat you. Treatment offerings will be determined by the dentist.

Sharing Smiles Day is an annual event hosted by Kool Smiles Dentistry for Kids. In 2016, Kool Smiles dentists provided free dental care to more than 500 children in need.
