Madison dentist Dr. Sam Romano will provide free preventive and restorative dental care and, if necessary, make referrals for continuing treatment for children ages 12 and under as part of National Children’s Dental Health Month.
The one-day program, called Give Kids a Smile!, is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 7, 2014. It is part of the American Dental Association’s annual push to bring attention to the number one childhood disease, tooth decay, according to an announcement from his office.
“Giving back to the community that has supported my practice is so important,” Romano said. “This program will touch the lives of so many of New Jersey’s children who need oral healthcare, but cannot afford it. I am proud to be a part of it."
Children who come to Dr. Romano’s office on Friday will receive a comprehensive dental exam, oral healthcare instruction, fluoride treatments, and free dental hygiene materials including toothbrushes, floss and toothpaste. Appointments are necessary from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The office will also have magician Simon Mandal performing for the children.
Last February, 2,000 children visited 140 sites across New Jersey, including private dental offices. In New Jersey, GKAS is supported by Colgate, Henry Schein Delta and Delta Dental of NJ.
Romano, a borough resident, has been practicing dentistry for more than 28 years in Madison. His practice is located at 120 Park Avenue.For more information call the office at 973-377-7088
