WHAT: Local uninsured children between the ages of 3 and 18 will receive free dental care at the 14th annual “Give Kids a Smile” event.

The school’s efforts were recognized this year with the E. “Bud” Tarrson Dental School Student Community Leadership Award, a grant from the ADA Foundation honoring the significant contributions Pitt has made to the community.
