Dental society hosts free health fair
The Multnomah Dental Society will hold its annual Free Children's Health Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Reynolds Middle School, 1200 N.E. 201st Ave. in Fairview.
The event will provide a variety of health and dental related services at no charge. 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 Xbox 360.
The fair is being held as part of the American Dental Association's nationwide program, Give Kids A Smile, which mobilizes the nation's dentists every February (National Children's Dental Health Month) to provide free oral health care services to low-income children.
