Local dentist gives underprivileged kids something to smile about (Madison, NJ) – Local dentist, Dr. Sam Romano, will provide one day of free preventive and emergency dental care and, if necessary, make referrals for continuing treatment for children ages 12 and under as part of National Children’s Dental Health Month (CDHM). The one-day program, called Give Kids a Smile! (GKAS), will take place on Friday, February 3, 2012, and is part of the American Dental Association’s (ADA) annual push to bring attention to the number one childhood disease, tooth decay. “Giving back to the community that has supported my practice is so important,” says Dr. Romano. “This program, in its 10th year, will touch the lives of so many of New Jersey’s children who need oral healthcare, but cannot afford it. I am proud to be a part of it,” he said. Children who come to Dr. Romano’s office on Friday will receive a comprehensive dental exam, oral healthcare instruction, fluoride treatments, and free dental hygiene materials including toothbrushes, floss and toothpaste. The office will also have clowns, face-painting, balloon artists and story tellers. It promises to be a fun-filled day for all children who take part. Last February, more than one million children in the United States received more than $100 million in dental care at more than 4,700 sites nationwide as a result of the GKAS event. In New Jersey, nearly 4,000 children visited 109 sites last February. For 2012, 135 sites have been confirmed across New Jersey including private offices, like Dr. Romano’s. Dr. Romano has been practicing dentistry for more than 26 years here in Madison. His practice, Dr. Samuel Romano, is located at 120 Park Avenue.
