MADISON, NJ – Local dentist, Dr. Sam Romano, will provide free preventiveand restorative dental care and, if necessary, make referrals for continuing treatment for children ages 12 and under as part of National Children’s Dental Health Month (CDHM).The one-day program, called Give Kids a Smile! (GKAS), will take place on Friday, February 7, 2014, and is part of the American Dental Association’s (ADA) annual push to bring attention to the number one childhood disease, tooth decay.
“Giving back to the community that has supported my practice is so important,” says Dr. Romano. “This program will touch the lives of so many of New Jersey’s children who need oral healthcare, but cannot afford it. I am proud to be a part of it,” he said.Children who come to Dr. Romano’s office on Friday will receive a comprehensive dental exam, oral healthcare instruction, fluoride treatments, and free dental hygienematerials including toothbrushes, floss and toothpaste. Appointments are necessary from 8-1. The office will also have “Simon Mandal” the world greatest magician who will be performing for the children. It promises to be a fun-filled day for all children who take part.
