Give Kids A Smile VCU Style – Another Record Event

Thank you to all that volunteered for Give Kids a Smile Day! We provided care to 197 patients and provided approximately $82,809 worth of care. This included, but was not limited to, 114 fillings, 39 stainless steel crowns, and 75 extractions. This annual effort is led by Dr. Elizabeth Berry in the Department of Pediatric Dentistry and includes support from the General Practice Department and other School of Dentistry specialty departments. “I wanted to especially thank the GKAS student coordinators that made this day possible. They will continue to work to provide dental homes to some of the patients seen last Friday” said Dr. Berry. Below are the awards given out for the day, please congratulate those awarded. “Thank you again to everyone for your cooperation for us to have this event” added Dr. Berry.
