EPIC: Exceptional Periodontal and Implant Concepts
The American Dental Association began the Give Kids A Smile program in 2003 as a way for dentists to join with others in the community to provide dental services to under served children. Our assistant, Roxanne volunteers her time at this event.
The events are focused on helping under served populations of children and adults who are without medically compromising conditions receive dental treatment that they, for whatever reason, cannot obtain. A MOM event is successful with the help of hundreds of volunteers – dental and non-dental – coming together with a common vision in mind. Dr. Barss participates at this event.
In 2003 through a small amount of funding from the State of Minnesota, the National Foundation of Dentistry for the Handicapped (NFDH) with the Minnesota Dental Association started a Donated Dental Services Program patterned after similar projects developed by the NFDH in 35 other states. Since that time, the “DDS Program” has successfully recruited over 260 Minnesota dentists and over 75 dental laboratories to donate their time and expertise to help disabled, elderly and medically-compromised people who cannot afford much needed dental care. Dr Barss participates in this service.
