Dental Road Crew Stops In Camp Washington
The Dental Road Crew helped children with their smiles in Camp Washington on Tuesday. The big bus, called “The Dental Road Crew” is really a dental clinic on wheels.
Inside the truck, dentists give children cleanings and look for dental problems while the youngsters get to watch cartoons. The road crew is part of the Cincysmiles Foundation that works to give dental care to those who would normally go without it.

Dental work program helps Oklahoma women
Syreeta Long always felt self-conscious about the gap between her front teeth. The single mom knew she had other problems with her teeth, but she didn’t have the insurance or extra money to pay for the dental work she desperately needed.
Then a friend told her about a program that helps women like her get free dental work and the confidence they need to go from welfare to work.
After 14 fillings and a repaired gap, Long’s confidence is back. And she’s working.
