Free dental care for needy kids next month ...

The Minnesota Dental Association aims to provide free dental care to 6,000 children at more than 200 clinic locations in Minnesota during its annual Give Kids a Smile event on Feb. 1 and 2. Interested families should call United Way 211 (dial 211).
 
Over the past decade, the association's events have provided free care to more than 50,000 children at a value of $15 million. The association noted that dental disease in kids is more prevalent than pediatric asthma and that 50 percent of first graders have some form of tooth decay.
