Stories and Smiles
Provides a full free dental exam and cleaning to children who don’t currently have a dentist. At each exam, parents will receive a free children’s book and are shown reading strategies to better develop an interest and love of reading in their children.
Reach Out and Read
Provides books to physicians, who share these with children at each well-child visit. Families are thus given a “prescription” to read to their children, laying the essential groundwork for later success with reading and literacy activities. This activity is provided by Lisa Edwards, our contracted Reach Out & Read Program Coordinator.
