Give Back Smile Back
This April, the team at Mount Pearl Dental in Newfoundland, partnered with Choices for Youth and their outreach program, Momma Moments. In Canada, approximately six million Canadians avoid visiting the dentist every year because of the cost.
"Whatever we can do to help in our community, we want to do it." Explains Treatment Coordinator, Andrew Murphy." Some of these women haven't been to the dentist in a long time, and we wanted to open our doors to help."
The Give Back Smile Back Program is a national initiative that provides free dental care to those who could otherwise not afford it across the country.
The Momma Moments outreach program aims to empower young pregnant and parenting women to effectively care for their children, and improve their healthy living skills.
