Ann Arbor, MI — March 14, 2015 — Dental and dental hygiene students, along with residents and clinical faculty from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry will volunteer their time on Saturday, April 2, providing free oral health care services to 100 children ages 5 to 14. The annual event at the School of Dentistry is a part of the American Dental Association’s Give Kids a Smile program which began in 2003.
Oral care will be provided on the second floor at the School of Dentistry, 1011 N. University Ave. on the Central Campus. Important times for the April 2 program are:
· 8:00 a.m. – Doors open
· 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. – Registration

It is not necessary to make an appointment. But all patients must be registered. A parent or guardian can pre-register their child for the clinic by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling (734) 936-0858. Children will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis.
Supervised by clinical faculty, dental and dental hygiene students will provide teeth cleanings, sealants, X-rays, and simple fillings. If necessary, some extractions may also be performed.
Free parking will be available on the upper level of the Fletcher Street parking structure which is adjacent to the School of Dentistry.
