Upcoming Delta Dental of Illinois Foundation Events
The Delta Dental of Illinois Foundation will post upcoming events throughout the year here. Scroll down to view our most current events.
Since its inception, the Land of Smiles has performed at elementary schools throughout Illinois, educating more than 300,000 children. In the Land of Smiles program, Tooth Wizard and his arch nemesis PlaqueMan visit Illinois elementary schools to interactively teach the value and practice of brushing, flossing and rinsing with mouthwash. They also discuss how sealants work, educate students about good and bad foods for teeth and emphasize the importance of visiting the dentist twice a year. Children each receive a Land of Smiles goodie bag containing a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss and a sheet of oral health tips explaining how to take care of their teeth.
Free preventive and diagnostic services such as exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants and X-rays will be offered to children age 5 and younger in Chicago on August 5 as part of the Delta Dental of Illinois Foundation’s Dentist By 1 program. Visits will satisfy the mandatory dental screening required to enter kindergarten.
Appointments must be made by Wednesday, August 2. Dental visits without an appointment will be limited.
When: Saturday, August 5, 2017 | 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Where: Malcolm X College, Dental Hygiene Clinic, 1900 West Jackson Blvd., Chicago, IL 60612
