KIDS FIRST DENTAL SERVICES
Tooth decay is the single most common childhood disease in the country. One of the epicenters of this national epidemic is Appalachia.In an effort to address the dental needs of the region where he was born and raised, Dr. Edwin Smith used his own money to transform a trailer into a mobile clinic that brings dental services to kids in need. Since 2005, his nonprofit has provided free diagnostic and preventive dental care to more than 43,000 children across Kentucky.
