Enough to bring a smile to your face

The youth of Creswell School district are served well by the staff and volunteers of South Lane Children’s Dental Clinic.

“It is very fortunate to have a clinic like this, and again, have people who will volunteer and do all they can. The unfortunate part is that the need is so great,” Dr. Robertson said.

School officials work with the clinic to get the kids there.

“This group of volunteers is able to see the bigger picture and the need in our communities for resources like this to really advocate for the children that otherwise would not be receiving the care,” Long said.

These tooth fairies are drilling away the discomfort, giving kids a reason to smile.
