In recognition of National Children's Dental Health Month, all 15 Risas Dental offices in the Phoenix Metro area will offer free exams and x-rays to children, under the age of 18, throughout the month of February.
In addition, every child that signs up for braces will get a free retainer. The local dental provider is providing these free services at every Risas office in the Valley to help children develop healthy habits at a young age.
“Our team puts patients before profits and the resources we offer is just one way to help families have confidence when starting their child’s dental health journey,” said Jeff Adams, CEO of Risas Dental and Risas Kids Dental.
To celebrate the month-long giving campaign, Risas Kids Dental and Molina Healthcare will also host a Kids Day event offering free walk-up dental exams, giveaways, and educational resources to the Phoenix community. Risas Kids Day will be held on February 4th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Risas Kids Alhambra office located at 3542 W. Camelback Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85019.
The American Academy of Dental Practice recommends children begin seeing a dentist by their first birthday, or 6 months after they get their first tooth. National Children’s Dental Health Month was created by the American Dental Association in 1981 to raise awareness about the importance of oral health.
“Our children’s smiles brighten up our days, but big issues can arise in their tiny mouths,” said Dr. Elizabeth Walton, Clinical Director of Pediatrics at Risas Kids Dental. “Developing a good dental routine from an early age will help your children get started on a lifetime of healthy teeth, gums, and tongue.”
The free Risas Kids Day event will provide free exams for children and experienced Risas Kids Dental staff will be available to speak one on one with parents for the opportunity to learn more about the importance of dental health and answer all questions or concerns. Representatives from Molina Healthcare will provide information about dental insurance. Live music, food, arts and crafts, and dental goodie bags will be provided. No registration is required to attend.
Attendees under the age of 12 will be entered to win a Nintendo Switch gaming console. Additionally, families in attendance with a child under the age of 12 will receive a $50 Risas gift card, which can be redeemed toward services at any of Risas’ Phoenix locations. Risas Kids Dental also intends to give away one free orthodontic treatment.
New and returning patients can schedule a future appointment for their child by calling (888)-321-0029 or by visiting https://risasdental.com/ for more information.
