Avon dentist sponsors kids’ dental screening day

AVON, Colorado – David Maloley and Vail Valley Dental Care are offering a free dental screening and basic teeth cleaning day Aug. 19 for children between the ages of 5 and 12. The screening will be held at Vail Valley Dental Care, in the Avon Center Building. The program will provide care and instruction to up to 20 kids.

“Proper dental care is more than just big, white teeth and glamorous images on TV,” Maloley said. “Kids here in our community should understand that oral health is a huge priority – too many life-altering diseases like diabetes and heart disease are now directly linked to the lack of oral hygiene and serve only to aggravate any health conditions we might have or become exposed to.”

To qualify for the free dental screening day, children must be between the age of 5 and 12, accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, and have a confirmed appointment by Aug. 17.

To learn more, call 970-949-3331 no later than Aug. 17.
