  TOMS RIVER – Ocean Pediatric Dental Associates will be giving kids a smile with one day of free dental care on Feb. 7, 2020.

  Dr. Elisa Velazquez & her team from Ocean Pediatric Dental Associates are participating in the one-day program, called Give Kids a Smile! (GKAS), on Friday, February 7, 2020. GKAS is part of the American Dental Association’s (ADA) annual push to bring attention to the number one childhood disease, tooth decay.

  “Giving back to the community that has supported my practice is so important,” said Dr. Velazquez. “This program, in its 16th year, will touch the lives of so many of NJ’s children who need dental care, but cannot afford it. I am proud to be a part of it,” she said.

  Children 12 and under will receive free preventive and emergency pediatric dental care including a comprehensive dental exam, dental cleaning, oral healthcare instruction, fluoride treatments, and free dental hygiene materials including toothbrushes, floss and toothpaste. The dentists and staff of OPDA are donating their time to help the children of Ocean County. 

  Ocean Pediatric Dental Associates is prepared to treat 100 children for free to improve their oral health during this year’s event.

  Ocean Pediatric Dental Associates has locations in Toms River, Manahawkin, and Cream Ridge. Give Kids A Smile! Will take place at 368 Lakehurst Road suite 305 Toms River, NJ.
