One Community Health is offering uninsured children free medical and dental checkups on Thursday, Feb. 12, as part of National Give Kids a Smile Day. The American Dental Association launched Give Kids a Smile Day in 2003 as a way for dentists across the country to provide dental services to underserved children. One Community Health has expanded the focus of the day to include medical care as well.
Parents or caregivers of uninsured children ages 1-18 who are Gorge residents (Hood River, Klickitat, Skamania and Wasco counties) are encouraged to make appointments for Give Kids a Smile Day at 541-386-6380. Appointments are available at One Community Health’s Hood River health center and at The Dalles health center.
Give Kids a Smile Day services include well child checks, dental exams and cleanings, basic health appointments for teenagers, immunization assessments, developmental screenings and assistance with enrollment in the Oregon Health Plan and Washington Apple Health.
