Lots of Minnesota children will see the dentist this week and not get a bill. Duluth dentist Tim Langguth said the Give Kids A Smile program is aimed at low-income families. Langguth said more than 500 volunteer dentists will see young patients Friday and Saturday. The dentist said its important that kids get regular dental check-ups early in life and that oral health affects health in general. Volunteer dentists in last year's Minnesota Dental Association program saw 5300 patients, filled over 3,000 cavities, installed 125 crowns and pulled 434 teeth. Parents should call the United Way at 800-543-7709 to get their kids enrolled.
