On February 23, The Scott Family Amazeum in Bentonville offered free health services.
The children’s museum provided free dental health screenings for kids as a part of their “Toothapalooza” event.
Delta Dental of Arkansas and Arkansas Children’s Hospital partnered to not only clean teeth, but to also send kids home with oral health supplies.
Delta Dental Representative, Elizabeth Haskett, said this is to promote going to the dentist as a positive experience.
“There was actually a little kid who was really scared of going to the dentist and so I went through it with him and by the end, he was saying he couldn’t wait to go to the dentist,” Haskett said.
The first 500 kids who received a screening today were rewarded with free admission to the Amazeum.
