Reuter Family Dentistry opened its doors to provide free dental care for low-income kids. The Wadena practice donated the care as part of a statewide initiative called "Give Kids a Smile."
"Research has shown strong links between kids' oral health and their overall health," said Dr. Heidi Reuter, D.D.S., Owner of Reuter Family Dentistry. "We want to stress the importance of giving kids a good foundation in healthy dental practices, which leads to less issues and better overall health later in life."
Give Kids a Small is coordinated by the Minnesota Dental Association. Families call ahead to schedule appointments. Services range from preventative care (cleanings, sealants and fluoride treatments) to restorative care, including fillings.
Reuter Family Dentistry donates their time and services so kids can receive care free of charge. The Reuters have participated for six consecutive years.
"We are always looking for ways to help families and kids," said Ryan Reuter, Practice Manager and Owner. "Give Kids a Smile is a great way to give back to the communities we serve."
Dr. Reuter and her staff donated more than $4,000 in dental care and services March 11 for Give Kids a Smile.
