Minnesota dentists are offering free dental care to children in need on Feb. 7 and 8. Appointments can be booked now. The Minnesota Dental Association (MDA) has over 1,200 dental professionals volunteering at nearly 100 clinics across the state for “Give Kids a Smile.”

Finding a clinic with open appointments is as easy as calling United Way 211 (just dial 2-1-1) or by visiting mndental.org under “Events” and “Give Kids a Smile,” then “Find a Participating Dentist.” Appointments can then be scheduled directly with the dental office.
