Tooth GraphicKids and their parents will have reasons to smile Saturday, February 8 when dental hygiene students at Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWIT) help area dentists, assistants and hygienists during a free dental day for kids.

Services are available by appointment, and will be offered 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.  Call 425.739.8100, ext. 8612 to schedule your appointment.  Services are available for children ages 5 to 13.  Call today, space is very limited.

The event will take place in the Dental Clinic at the LWIT Kirkland campus, 11605 132nd Ave, NE.

For more than 20 years, LWIT has worked with area dental professionals to reduce cavities for children in the community. They provide exams, x-rays, fluoride varnish and sealants.  Sealants are white coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth to protect from cavities.  They are non-toxic, application is painless, and they can protect a child's teeth for six to eight years. Kids with cavities will be scheduled to have their teeth filled later at no cost.
