Free Dental Care During Boo at the Zoo

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - UAMS will be providing free dental care for kids at this year's Boo at the Zoo.

The hospital is teaming up with the Little Rock Zoo to offer free fluoride applications during the annual Halloween event.

Dentists and dental hygienists will be at Boo at the Zoo Oct. 23-24.

Organizers say this is an easy way to take care of your children's teeth and get some free dental advice.

"This is an inter-professional project with us, so you are going to have dental hygiene professionals, a dentist there, a physician's assistant and students there that are actually going to be doing the applications and they are going to be doing education," says Wendy McCloud with UAMS.

This is the first year for this program that's made possible by a grant from Delta Dental.
