Dance for a Kid’s Smile
The North Texas Hispanic Dental Association in 2013 developed a fundraising event called: “Dance for a Kid’s Smile” Zumbathon.
The proceeds of the event were used to create a fund titled ”A Happy Tooth/ El Diente Feliz” to provide free Dental Care to disadvantaged children in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.
The Dance for a Kid’s Smile Zumbathon raised more than $5,000. The money is currently used to provide care for young patients in Dallas. Not only does the program support dental care for underserved kids, it also provides dental students and pediatric residents from Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry with clinical exposure working with young children. The Dental Schools are having more and more difficulty attracting young patients so we really need to help these students who will be the future of our profession get more exposure working with young children.
We are already looking forward to organizing the 2016 Dance for a Kid’s Smile event again!!!
