Give Kids A Smile Day!

This weekend I had the opportunity to volunteer at the Charlotte motor Speedway for the "Give Kids a Smile" program. Where 3m ESPE, the American Dental Association, Henry Schein Cares, and Speedway Children's Charities hosted FREE youth Dental clinics!

This was a great first time experience for the "Give Kids a Smile Program" We had the opportunity to screen over 200 children. The Screenings consisted of x-rays that we took and then placed on USB wrist bands, we also placed sealants, fluoride varnish treatments, and had a educational portion for children to be educated about the importance of oral Health!

DID YOU KNOW...Today 1/3 of children in North Carolina are without dental insurance, and the resulting untreated tooth decay means they're unable to eat, sleep or pay attention in class because of the pain.

Thats why Greg Biffle is teaming up with the American Dental Association "Give Kids A Smile" program to put oral health on the fast track for kids throughout the Carolina's!!!!

After a very long but successful day working at the Race Track we got to attend the race!!! This is one of the only sports that prayer takes place at such an amazing sport with great supportive fans and sponsors!!!!!
