The University of Maine at Augusta Dental Health Clinic is hosting its annual “Give Kids a Smile Day” in partnership with the American Dental Association this year.  The second day of the “Give Kids a Smile Day” event will be held on March 4 from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm at the UMA Dental Hygiene Clinic located on UMA’s Bangor campus at 201 Texas Avenue in Bangor. The event was held on two-days to ensure that the same number of children could be served while maintaining all necessary COVID-19 protocols. The UMA Dental Hygiene Clinic operates according to the American Dental Association and Maine CDC recommended safety requirements and precautions.

Children ages five to 18, who do not have a dentist, can schedule free dental appointments to get cleanings, exams, x-rays, fluoride treatments, and dental hygiene education. Students from UMA’s Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting programs will be providing care with the aid of staff dentists and faculty members from UMA’s Dental Health Programs.

All patients, guests, students, and staff are required to wear face coverings. Contact the UMA Dental Health Clinic at 262-7872 or email at bangorhygschool@maine.edu for more information about the event, required COVID-19 protocols, and to make an appointment
