Children 6 and younger received free dental help, and this day was made possible by the Delta Dental of Illinois Foundations’ “Dentist by 1” event.
Some of the free dental help treatments offered included dental examinations, professional dental cleanings, fluoride treatments and dental X-rays.
Organizers say they wished to offer free dental help to at least 60 children from the community.
In cases where children were found to be in need of further dental help, dentists offered referrals to the parents.
The dental clinic of the Greater Elgin Family Care Center was the place where any additional dental work was or will be carried out.
In addition to free dental help services, all children present received toothpaste, a toothbrush and an oral health brochure on how to take care of their teeth at home.
