OC kids get free dental care

On Feb. 1, the Hilltop Smiles dental care team provided underserved children with everything from cleanings, exams, and digital X-rays to fluoride and sealants. Children received a toothbrush kit to take home after their treatment.

“We are glad that we had an opportunity to serve our community’s children in need,” said Dr. Aziz Karam, D.M.D, Hilltop Smiles and Orthodontics. “Oral health is integral to overall health. Untreated dental decay may affect a child’s ability to eat and sleep and their ability to concentrate in school, not to mention how it can affect them emotionally.”

The Give Kids A Smile event, part of an American Dental Association program, was designed to provide free and needed dental services to local qualifying children from underserved families.

Hilltop Smiles and Orthodontics has family practice, oral surgeons and orthodontics all under one roof. The practice offers a full range of services including same-day crowns, implants, veneers and bridges.

Hilltop Smiles and Orthodontics is at 1436 Molalla Ave., Oregon City. For more information about Hilltop Smiles and Orthodontics, visit hilltopsmilesdentistry.com or call 503-722-1100.
