Kids in Shasta County can get FREE dental care next Friday as Shasta College dental hygiene students, local dentists and other volunteers participate in national “Give Kids a Smile Day.”
From 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., kids 18 and under who have no dental insurance can get free exams, fillings, sealants, cleanings and more. The children will also be instructed in proper dental care. Shasta County social agencies will provide information to parents.
The first-come, first-served clinics will be at 1400 Market Street in Redding, 2801 Silver Street in Anderson and 4215 Front Street in Shasta Lake City.
