Families in Morgantown will have two opportunities to "Give Kids A Smile."

Friday, the Monongalia County Health Department will participate in the national event offering free dental care to children without dental insurance.

Next Friday, February 8, the WVU School of Dentistry will do the same.

A dentist with the Monongalia Health Department said providing oral care for kids is crucial.

"A general misunderstanding of how important the baby teeth or primary teeth are. Even though those are teeth a child will lose at a young age, they are important to their health, they are important to their development and are important to the proper development of adult teeth as well," said Dr. Dan Carrier, of the Monongalia County Health Department.

To make an appointment with the Monongalia Health Department for February 1, call 304-598-5108.

To schedule an appointment with WVU school of dentistry on Friday, February 8, call 304-293-0401.
