AN OVERVIEW OF KIDSMILES
What is KidSMILES?
KidSMILES is a pediatric dental clinic with a mission to provide quality dental care for children at an affordable cost for their families. The clinic provides a wide variety of dental services at a low cost for children in need.
The Importance of Dental Health
Dental health plays a critical role in the overall health and well being of a child. Children with little or no dental care are very susceptible to getting cavities. Cavities can lead to much larger problems such as: pain, infection, and malnutrition. Good overall dental health is a critical part of good overall health. KidSMILES will provide the dental care that many families simply cannot afford.
KidSMILES will provide comprehensive care to all patients, but the main focus will be disease removal and prevention. We will also provide education about proper oral hygiene and the importance of good dental health.
KidSMILES Board Members
The KidSMILES concept originated out of a desire to give back to the central Ohio area. Dr. James Homon, founder of KidSMILES, grew up in Dublin and graduated from The Ohio State University Dental School. Dr. Byron Henry, Dr. Jeff Milton and Dr. Tim Edwards are local dental professionals (and graduates of OSU) who serve on the KidSMILES board and have helped define the clinic’s mission. Julie Homon serves as the Executive Director.
If every office volunteered for one day a year, KidSmiles could be fully staffed all year long! KidSmiles will work around your schedule if you are interested in volunteering. It is such a positive and rewarding experience to help those in need.
We are looking for the following volunteers:
- Expanded Function Dental Auxiliary (EFDAs)
- Dental Assistants
- Dental Lab Technicians
- Administrative Staff
