Thanks to Philadelphia Gentle Dental offices participating in a Give Kids A Smile event, children are smiling brighter.
On June 20, 2012, four Philadelphia Gentle Dental locations saw over 30 children and performed almost $10,000 worth of complimentary dental treatment.
Dr Keith Libou, Gentle Dental of Pennsylvania’s Dental Director, said “We are happy to do our part by offering children the opportunity to receive quality dental care, which has been shown to improve higher self-esteem and overall happiness throughout their lives.”
Children at the event received treatment in various areas including exams, x-rays, cleanings, and fluoride treatment.
Gentle Dental of Pennsylvania works to improve the overall dental health in children by encouraging children to take care of their teeth, offering affordable treatment options, and helping to teach good dental habits.

In my first two years out of school, I was fortunate enough to take the IV sedation course and implant courses. Dental Care Alliance actually picked up the tab. It was over $20,000 in courses. If I started my own practice I would not have had that opportunity.
