Going to the dentist's office is not always exciting, but on January 2 La Crosse area dentists give children something to smile about.
Every year the La Crosse District Dental Society takes part in the nationwide "Give Kids a Smile" day.
The day provides children around the La Crosse area with dental work free of charge, helping area children receive the care they need without the added financial stress.
"It feels completely fresh, brand new teeth pretty much," describes dental patient Abby Powell.
Erica Stanek D.D.S. of Stanek Dental elaborates on the coverage they provide, "We just take some of our time to do whatever needs they have, again sometimes it's just preventative care, other times they need some fillings or maybe a baby tooth extracted or something like that."
11 dental offices around the La Crosse area are taking part in today's event.
