Available treatments will include dental exams, limited emergency care, extractions, restorative care, and cleanings on a limited basis.

Why this matters: Access to affordable dental care is a critical issue that affects not only oral health but also overall well-being, and events like Sharing Smiles Day can help bridge the gap for underserved communities.

In addition to providing free dental services, Sharing Smiles Day will focus on educating patients about proper oral care habits. "The event aims to provide free dental care and educate patients about the importance of good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing, flossing, and maintaining a healthy diet for a healthy smile," according to event organizers.
