Dr. Dickson Helps Provide Free Dental Service to 150 Underserved Texas Children
Online PR News – 16-April-2010 – – Plano, Texas – Dr. Darren Dickson, of the Plano Center for Aesthetic Dentistry, came back from the 2010 Give Kids a Smile event grinning from ear to ear. The event, held in conjunction with National Dental Health Month, was a huge success.
More than 150 underserved children the North Texas area were provided with a free dental health screening, courtesy of Dr. Dickson and the North Texas Dental Society. Many of the children came from Spanish-speaking households that have no English-speaking adults in residence, so translators were also provided.
“It is really inspiring to see the improvements made since I first volunteered with GKAS over 4 years ago. After seeing what an impact the program can have on individual children and their families, it was easy to see how beneficial it would be to expand the program to accommodate more kids within our large district,” Dickson said.
“We are also striving to continue offering these kids long-term recall care and, for the first time ever, we are expanding our GKAS program to begin providing orthodontic services. Helping others is a contagious feeling and we plan to continue spreading the word within our district, around our state, and ultimately, around the country, about how we can do more to help give back to the disadvantaged in our communities,” he said.
Dr. Dickson, a Plano dentist, has been involved with Give Kids a Smile for the last four years, and plans to continue his involvement. He hopes for more such opportunities to help his community.
