we’re grinning from ear to ear

We were so gratified as hundreds of families received free screenings by dentists, referrals to dentists near them, and help navigating the insurance marketplace. We’d like to especially thank our sponsors  -Patterson Dental, Kaiser Permanente, HealthNet, Delta Dental.
