Joyce Greene, a local business owner here in Scarsdale, is always looking for ways to help people. She especially likes to help children.
Once again, Scarsdale Dental Spa is opening its doors to community children who don’t currently have access to the proper dental care. Each year, to honor National Dental Health Month, through its “Smiles For Kids” program, the unique practice provides dental care and services in addition to education to those families whose children cannot afford to visit a dentist regularly.
It is very important to nurture children in an environment where they feel safe and comfortable. Effective learning occurs during activities which children perceive as fun and non-threatening. Many adult patients don’t get the care they need as a result of early childhood dental experiences.
All throughout the year, parents and guardians can bring in children to get a free dental exam, necessary x-rays (all safe digital system) and comprehensive cleaning and fluoride treatments. All these services are provided at no charge. Families also receive information which can help them to maintain good oral health between visits to the dentist.
“Smiles For Kids” supplies educational materials on a variety of dental subjects to parents and guardians, so community children can get the knowledge they deserve. The staff at Scarsdale Dental Spa also attends area schools each February to support a grass roots educational campaign. Many parents have praised these efforts by visiting our office themselves and telling our team what great brushing and eating habits these school programs have developed in their children.
The Spa also encourages other individuals and organizations who wish to support “Smiles For Kids” to contribute any available resources to continue these efforts.
Scarsdale Dental Spa is located in the Lord & Taylor shopping center at 700 White Plains Road in Scarsdale. The practice specializes in providing state of the art clinical and cosmetic artistry combined with relaxing spa treatments. It has become Westchester’s premiere spot for patients who demand the highest quality dentistry as well as those patients who have fears that kept them from getting the dental care they need.
