There's nothing better than seeing a smile on a child's face – especially a healthy smile.

Children from the ages of 1 to 18 can get preventive dental services at no cost, including visual exams, fluoride treatments and dental sealants, at area clinics Saturday, March 4 as part of the "Give Kids a Smile" program.

Parents can call immediately to make appointments at the clinics listed below to get free visual exams, fluoride treatments and dental sealants that can protect against cavities.

The Give Kids a Smile program was started nationally in 2003 to help children, particularly in underserved areas, with free oral health care. Here, the San Diego County Dental Foundation teams up every year with local dentists and community clinics to provide free oral health care to hundreds of local kids.

This year's program is sponsored in San Diego this year by the County Health and Human Services Agency's Live Well San Diego campaign and First 5 San Diego.
