Health and wellness fair to feature free dental screenings for kids up to age 8 and a special visit from PBS Kids’ Clifford the Big Red Dog

Arizona PBS and the Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation will visit the White Mountain Apache Tribal Community to participate in the White Mountain Apache Tribal Community events on Friday, April 12 and Friday, April 19, 2024. Full event details can be found at azpbs.org/smile.

The free events will last from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., taking place at Cibecue ABHS Clinic, 218 East Cliff View Road, Cibecue, Arizona, 85911, and start at 11 a.m. in Whiteriver at the Indian Health Service Field. Both events will include a dental team from North Country Community Health Center offering free oral health screenings and fluoride varnish treatments for children. There will also be a special appearance by PBS KIDS’ character, Clifford the Big Red dog, as well crafts and children’s book giveaways.

“These community events are the perfect opportunity to provide oral health education and supplies to help children and their parents understand the connection between good oral health and overall health,” said Barb Kozuh, Executive Director of Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation. “We truly believe this partnership provides the education necessary to help lower the caries rate which can also decrease school absenteeism and increase overall wellness.”

“Community service is an essential part of Arizona PBS’ mission,” said Arizona PBS Senior Director of Educational Outreach Kimberly Flack. “We’re excited to continue partnering with the Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation to visit communities across the state, helping educate children and families on the importance of dental care.”

Arizona PBS and the Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation’s involvement in the event is part of a statewide “Have a Healthy Smile” campaign. The campaign aims to boost family involvement in good oral health practices, focusing on the importance of brushing twice a day, changing toothbrushes regularly, and visiting the dentist twice a year.
