Forty-one Illinois children received free dental exams on Saturday in Elgin.
The event held at Elgin Community College’s Dental Assisting Clinic was part of Delta Dental of Illinois Foundation’s Dentist By 1 program, which educates parents and caregivers about good oral health habits and the benefits of starting dental visits early.
About 62% of children attending this year’s event had never been to a dentist before, and 35% showed signs of tooth decay.
