“February is a wonderful time to shower our children with love. Some of the loveliest things we get to experience as parents are the beautiful smiles of our children; it is one of our most precious joys,” says Dr. Laurie Sargent, director of oral health services.

She adds, “Let’s use this month as an opportunity to take our children to the dentist for a cleaning. Let’s make their smiles sparkle!”

According to the story, AllOne Foundation, Wilkes-Barre, provided the funding for this community outreach initiative and Benco Dental, Pittston,  discounted the purchase as an avid supporter of accessible dental care in the community.
