Free Dental Appointments for ages 3 to 18, are being offered in Cheshire County as part of the annual “Give Kids a Smile” program.

They will then be paired with a local dentist where they can schedule an appointment. This local program is available for Cheshire County residents only and parents must accompany their children during their dental visit.
