Hispanic International Mission (HIM) successfully hosted Give Kids a Smile event (February 27th, 2020) at Fuller Middle School - Flyers After School Program, Framingham. It is hard to describe with words how wonderful was this event held in a fantastic program lead by Dr. Viera.
Over 184 children were treated and received health education workshops with prizes, dinner, and free take-home oral care supplies; 38 children received age-appropriate diagnostic/preventive oral care and were referred to Edward Kennedy Community Health Center in Framingham.
Our team was composed of 16 dental professionals volunteers who donated their time and services to this noble cause. Our team was of 16 dental professionals volunteers who donated their time and services.
