Miles of Smiles provides FREE dental care to children in the Northland who do not have access to dental care. The dental care is provided by a licensed dentist and assistants, in a school setting or social service agency, church or community location for ease of access. Miles of Smiles treats children from the ages of 3 to 18, and 75% of the treatment provided is fillings and extractions. All of our patients receive a comprehensive exam, cleaning and x-rays.
The Miles of Smiles Inc. Portable Dental Program began in 2002 to meet the oral health care needs of low income children in Clay and Platte Counties. Since then, we have treated 11,932 children for 26,280 chair visits. The dental program consists of two dentists and four dental assistants who provide treatment on-site, in schools, and at other social service organizations. All services are free to Clay and Platte County children who meet the income guidelines. To find out if the dental program is scheduled to come to your school or organization, call (816) 413-9009.
