SUCCESSFUL “GIVE KIDS A SMILE” DAY

Dr. Randall W. Hollenberg, a local pediatric dentist in Katy, hosted his first “Give Kids a Smile” Day at his office on February 15, 2013 in observance of National Children’s Dental Health Month. Give Kids a Smile Day was started over 10 years ago by the American Dental Association as a day to raise awareness of the high level of oral disease suffered by children primarily from low-income families. The event held at Dr. Hollenberg’s office was a day of free dental care open to the children of our community who are uninsured and in need of dental care. Dr. Hollenberg and his team set a goal of one hundred patients scheduled and that goal was accomplished one week prior to the event. Of the one hundred patients scheduled sixty-five children attended. With the help of Dr. Megha Patel, an associate dentist of Dr. Hollenberg, Dr. Ulpa Patel, a wonderful  volunteer dentist, and all of Dr. Hollenberg’s office staff, along with 7 other volunteers,  the team successfully  provided over $12,500 of dental services, such as exams, x-rays, cleanings, sealants, fillings, extractions, and stainless steel crowns.  Dr. Hollenberg greatly appreciates all the time and effort that went into this event and would like to thank all of the amazing volunteers. He would also like to thank Benco and Henry Schein for donating some of the dental supplies needed. Dr. Hollenberg looks forward to hosting Give Kids a Smile Day as an annual event with a bigger goal to help more children in the community.
