Free childrens health fair set at Lynch View


The Multnomah Dental Society will hold its annual free children's health fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, at Lynch View Elementary School, 1546 S.E. 169th Place.

This community outreach program provides a variety of health and dental related services at no charge.

Services will include dental, vision and hearing screenings; dental treatment through mobile dental units; immunizations; information on a variety of health care topics; Oregon Health Plan and Healthy Kids sign up and resources and more.

Food will be provided. Each child attending will receive a 'goodie bag' that includes a toothbrush and toothpaste and information on taking care of their teeth.

In addition, there will be entertainment and prize drawings, including the grand prize of a PlayStation gaming set. Children do not need to be present at the time of the drawing to win.

The fair is held as part of the American Dental Association's nationwide program, Give Kids A Smile.

The objective of Give Kids A Smile is to mobilize the nation's dentists during the month of February (National Children's Dental Health Month) to provide free oral health care services to thousands of low-income children.
