Dental Associates Brightens Smiles of Local Children With Free Dental Care

Green Bay Location Celebrates Annual "Kids' Day" by Providing Free Cleanings, X-Rays and Examinations

GREEN BAY, WI--(Marketwire - June 12, 2009) - 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 that on June 25, the company's Green Bay dental center will offer teeth cleanings, x-rays and general check-ups to all local children, free of charge.

Kids' Day is an annual tradition in Green Bay started by Mayor Jim Schmitt upon taking office in 2003. The day celebrates the families of the community through participation and events hosted by local businesses. At Dental Associates, Green Bay children will receive a free dental examination, cleaning, and if necessary, x-rays. The event will be hosted from 8am until noon and parents will need to call (920) 431-1744 by Monday, June 22, to reserve a spot for their child(ren). Free food and entertainment will be provided.

"Dental Associates is a fantastic example of how a local organization can make a huge difference," said Jim Schmitt, Mayor of Green Bay, Wisconsin. "Dental Associates always leaves children smiling and thanks to the hundreds of free cleanings they'll be giving out on Kids' Day, they'll leave parents smiling as well."

"Wisconsin parents can also ensure their children's teeth are well cared for the other 364 days of the year through the purchase of a Care + Plus Dental Plan policy," said Anthony Vastardis, Dental Associates' CEO.

Care+Plus was especially designed to help families maintain excellent oral health and bright smiles at an affordable price. Dental Associates is the exclusive provider for Care+Plus Dental Plans.

"Dr. John Gonis founded Dental Associates more than 34 years ago with the mission of providing Total Patient Satisfaction. It's in that spirit which we continue to be a major participant in Kids' Day and offer a tremendous value to Wisconsin families, who Dr. Gonis always viewed as members of Dental Associates' extended family," added Vastardis.
