BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – This summer, the Eastern Florida State College Dental Clinic will help Brevard County children thanks to a special contribution made by supporters Guy and Delores Spearman.

The clinic will provide free dental cleanings and exams to children ages 3-17 through June 30. The appointments may also include fluoride treatments, X-rays and sealants based on the need of the child.

Each child will also receive a free T-shirt, toothbrush and toothpaste.

The effort is an extension of the college’s Happy Smiles Happy Kids dental program held in March each year. The Spearman’s have financially supported that project since its inception to ensure children in the community have access to dental health care.

“We’re very grateful to the Spearman’s for their dedication to Brevard children and meeting this unmet community need,” said college President Dr. Jim Richey.

“Our Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting students have long been proud of their efforts with the annual Happy Smiles Happy Kids event. It’s wonderful for us to extend that help over the summer.”

Those interested in making an appointment for their child should call (321) 433-7570.
