"Give Kids A Smile"
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.
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.
