Portland, February 7th, 2015. Kaiser Permanente Northwest provided more than $80,000 in free dental care and vaccinations to approximately 200 uninsured and underinsured children at seven locations in Oregon and Southwest Washington. More than one-quarter of those children received both dental and medical care. The free clinics, called Give Kids a Smile, were offered in conjunction with National Children’s Dental Health Month and in partnership with the American Dental Association. These events also were timed to Oregon’s immunizations exclusion date.
