It was another successful Give Kids a Smile Day with approximately 400 school age children receiving comprehensive clinical care. ASDOH students joined faculty and staff along with community dentists, hygienists, volunteers along with ASDOH alums and AZDA members to work with the children. Buses from local schools started arriving at 8:30 along with walk-ins with the last bus leaving ASDOH around 3:00 in the afternoon.
