This will make our residents smile! Dental care is usually listed as one of the top three needs for people experiencing homelessness. It has been many years since most of our residents had dental care, and some have never seen a dentist!

Smiles Giving Day will be hosted by Dr. Do of Red Oak Family Dentistry and he will see more than 30 of our residents for FREE to provide various dental procedures including filings, extractions, and cleanings.
