The free dental screenings will be offered in the Health Department's Smile Squad, a state of the art mobile dental clinic that travels throughout DuPage County serving children who need dental services.
This event will take place at two locations in the county:
•DuPage Children's Museum-301 N. Washington St. Naperville

Patients who receive free services at the Children's Museum location will also receive a coupon to enjoy the museum after their screening or at a later date. (good for one adult admission with one paid child admission).
This event is part of the national "Give Kids A Smile Day" sponsored by the American Dental Association (ADA). The ADA began the Give Kids A Smile program in 2003 as a way for dentists to join with others in the community to provide dental services to underserved children. Dentists and other team members volunteer their time, and services, to provide screenings, treatments and education to children throughout the United States.
