Dental Associates Provides Education and Free Dental Exams in Celebration of National Children's Dental Health Month

KENOSHA, WI--(Marketwire - February 15, 2010) - Dental Associates, Wisconsin's largest dental group, with eight offices throughout the state and more than 100 of the country's top general dentists and specialists, today announced their celebration of the American Dental Association's (ADA's) National Children's Dental Health Month. Dental Associates will participate by offering free examinations in a partnership with Gateway Technical College. Additionally, numerous company dentists, hygienists and assistants will be visiting local schools and hosting events to promote and educate children on how to maintain good dental health.

Close to one hundred local children received full dental exams at the Gateway Boys and Girls Club Health Fair on February 10th. Members of the Dental Associates Kenosha team will also be present at local schools throughout the month to promote and demonstrate easy, child friendly ways of ensuring good dental health. Team members will be appearing at Grant Elementary, Somers Elementary, Bose Elementary, Prairie Lane Elementary, Stocker Elementary and Library Square Day Care Center. A local Girl Scout troop will also receive a special invite to the Kenosha clinic on February 15th, where troop members will get a behind-the-scenes look at the facility.

"While there is an extra focus on good dental health for children this month, educating children on the value of keeping their teeth healthy is a year-round goal at Dental Associates," said Dr. James Blong, Dental Associates' Kenosha clinic director.

To ensure year-round bright smiles for each child, Dental Associates not only offers a 'Dental Tips for Kids' section on its website, but also offers, through its Care + Plus program, access to top-quality dental care at affordable prices.

"Now more than ever, individuals and families need to stretch their budgets. Care + Plus is our way of ensuring that families will always have a local dental care center they can turn to for top-of-the-line dental care that fits within their means," said Anthony Vastardis, Dental Associates' CEO.
