So far this year, Kool Smiles, Atlanta, has donated more than $12.5 million in free dental services to underserved communities. In celebration, the company is launching a new Facebook page that will allow visitors to help children in need. For every "Like" the Facebook page gets, Kool Smiles will donate a toothbrush to an underserved child.
Polly Buckey, DDS, MS, a board-certified pediatric dentist who serves as a spokesperson for Kool Smiles, said, "At Kool Smiles, we’re glad to be able to provide an avenue for communication regarding the dental health of America’s youth. We’re also excited to provide Facebook users that support our vision with the opportunity to reach out to a child in need with a simple click of the mouse. The more people become aware of the oral health crisis facing the children in the United States, the closer Kool Smiles will grow to its goal of accessible dental care for every child."
