Special Olympics Special Smiles
Volunteer dentists, hygienists, assistants, and dental students will screen 500 Special Olympic athletes as part of the Annual Healthy Athletes Special Smiles program. The Special Olympics Special Smiles program focuses on improving the oral health of athletes at state sponsored Special Olympics Games.
Athletes will receive a non-invasive oral health screening, one-on-one tooth brushing instructions modified to accommodate their specific disability, an assessment of their oral health and referral information for dentists who treat patients with special needs. Finally, athletes will leave with a goody bag including toothpaste, toothbrush and floss.
