Sharing Smiles Day will provide free dental care for children


LAFAYETTE — Children will be able to receive the dental care they need free of charge during Sharing Smiles Day on May 22, 2022.

In Lafayette, Taylor Dental partnered with Benevis, a national dental service organization, for the seventh annual Sharing Smiles Day. Sharing Smiles Day is a volunteer event that provides a free day of dental care to uninsured children and their families.

According to Benevis, previous Share Smiles Day events have provided dental relief to more than 2,000 uninsured patients in 16 states. This year, volunteer doctors and staff from 21 Benevis partner dental practices will participate in the day of free dental care for uninsured and underinsured children.

Adults are welcome ONLY in certain offices. Patients 19 years of age or older are REQUIRED to pre-register for treatment. Pre-registration will open on March 12, 2022 and close on May 21, 2022.

Each patient will be screened to determine treatment needs. Treatments available will include dental exams, limited emergency care, extractions and restorative care. Treatments will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis, and treatment offerings will be determined by the dentist.

If your child is insured by Medicaid or has other insurance, please call us at 877-878-1590 to schedule an appointment that is convenient for you. In previous years, more than 700 dentists and team members have hosted free dental days at 43 dental offices in 12 states.
