An event hitting Scranton this weekend could have kids grinning from ear to ear!
Fortis Institute Dental Hygiene Clinic along Ash Street in Scranton is hosting “Give Kids A Smile Day” this Saturday, February 18.
The annual event provides free cleanings, x-rays, sealants and more for kids ages one to 16 years of age.
The event is held in February because it's “National Children’s Dental Health Month.”
"Give Kids A Smile Day" is free. It's organized by Fortis' dental hygiene students.
The students perform the dental work alongside several area dentists.
