Give Kids a Smile Day

IMG_1155On Saturday, March 23, Alameda Pediatric Dentistry’s doctors and staff were hard at work to Give Kids a Smile. While most dental offices were closed for the weekend, Drs. Ngo, Katheria, and Shaffer and 11 Alameda and Pleasanton Pediatric Dentistry staff members volunteered their time to provide much-needed dental care to underserved kids.

“We could not help these families without our wonderful team, whose energy and enthusiasm at 7:30 in the morning was invigorating,” Dr. Ngo says.

Give Kids a Smile Day at Alameda Pediatric Dentistry

On Saturday, March 10, when most dental offices were closed for the weekend, the doors of Alameda Pediatric Dentistry were open. Inside the sunny, South Shore Center office, Doctors Ngo and Katheria were busy administering fillings, crowns, and sealants to six young patients whose families could not afford dental care.

The doctors’ volunteer efforts were part of Give Kids a Smile, an American Dental Association (ADA)-sponsored program that galvanizes dental societies, schools, and health centers across the country to provide free oral health care services to children who come from low-income backgrounds.

Doctors Ngo and Katheria were not alone in the office – several caring Alameda Pediatric Dentistry staff joined their efforts to service and educate underserved children ages 4 to 7 and their parents.

“We really appreciate our staff for volunteering their time to help these families,” Dr. Ngo says. “We could not do it without our wonderful team. The energy and enthusiasm at 7:30 in the morning was invigorating and we all really enjoyed this special event.” (more…)
