Licensed dentists and dental hygienists participate in the program to assist young children in need of dental examinations, cleanings and fillings.
“It helps the children,” Dr. Timothy Gould, a Corry dentist, said during his recent visit to examine numerous Kane school children. “We’re helping kids who otherwise may not see a dentist.”
