The event is sponsored by Give Kids A Smile. Children will get comprehensive dental care and not just preventative work.
Eligible children include toddlers thru 8th grade students who qualify for Medicaid or free school lunch programs may participate. Children must preregistered to attend.
It takes place Friday, Oct. 25 and Saturday, Oct. 26 at the Saint Louis University`s Center for Advanced Dental Education.
