On November 30, 2012, the annual Give Kids a Smile outreach day took place at CVIM. Sponsored by the local Dental Society and finding a home at CVIM for several years now, the annual Give Kids a Smile event considers recommendations from school nurses in Chester County of children in desperate need of dental care and then provides it, free of charge. This year the smiles of 39 children from Avon Grove, Kennett, and Downingtown school districts were restored as part of the initiative!
A special thanks goes out to the volunteer dentists and dental hygienists who gave their time and talent to make the restorations possible; the volunteers from AAA Mid Atlantic whose enthusiasm and spirit dried tears, encouraged laughter, and raised the spirits of our youngest patients; and GlaxoSmithKline for providing lunch for everyone involved in the event. Thanks to your generosity, CVIM provided in one day $15,000 worth of services free to children truly in need in Chester County.
