KUSA - Some of them are a bit intimidated when they walk into a dentist's office for the first time.
However, Dr. Sean Whalen says by the time they leave, many of those kids are smiling.
Whalen is one of dozens of dentists offering their services for Give Kids a Smile Day.
The service offers one day of free dental care for kids in the Denver Metro area. Give Kids a Smile Day is Friday, Feb 7.
Children age 17 or younger from low-income families without dental care qualify for the service. But every child must be signed up for an appointment.
Appointments are available throughout the metro area. For a list of dentists offering free services and contact information to set up an appointment, click here: http://www.cdaonline.org/gkaspatient
