More than 200 children received dental care at the Health Smiles, Healthy Children Dental Home Day.

In concert with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry Annual Session, the fourth annual Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children Dental Home Day was held in May to help underserved children in San Antonio. The event— which differs from other charitable initiatives in that it provides patients with treatment for a year—was held at the Ricardo Salinas Pediatric Dental Clinic and University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Thanks to 50 volunteers and support from Sunstar Americas, 203 San Antonio children now have dental homes. Two-thirds of the Dental Home Day patients required more extensive treatment and were scheduled for follow-up visits.
