While many people enjoyed having President's Day off Monday, a group of hard-working Sheridan area dentists and hygienists used the day to serve Sheridan County children. Called "Give Kids a Smile" Day, the event was an opportunity for children who do not have dental insurance or Title 19 dental coverage to receive exams, x-rays, cleanings and sealants -- all free of charge. Dr. Brian Cook with Sugarland Dental tells us the background.
Dr. Cook said that all the dental professionals who took part found it meaningful.
Dr. Cook says that he and the other participating professionals saw a steady stream of children all day Monday. They hope to be able to continue the tradition in Sheridan for years to come.
