, /PRNewswire/ -- More than 400 Smile Generation-trusted dental offices served their local communities on by participating in the fifth annual Smile Generation Serve Day. The clinicians and their dental care teams served 2,100 community members who would not otherwise have access to dental care, providing more than in donated dentistry.
The dental offices teamed up with local organizations and community partners, such as youth centers, nonprofit organizations and churches, to identify individuals that were in need of basic dental care.
"Smile Generation Serve Day is a day for giving back to the community," said, founder, president and CEO of Pacific Dental Services. "Having access to dental care is critical for a patient's overall health. By opening up their practices to help those who may not otherwise have access to dental care, the Smile Generation-trusted dentists are confirming their commitment to their community members and their oral health."
Patients received everything from cleanings, exams, and digital X-rays to extractions, implants and restorations. Smile Generation Serve Day was supported in part by Henry Schein. Dental is the largest provider of health care products and services to office-based practitioners.
