Most, if not all of the children that come to our shelter need dental work. Some children never owned a toothbrush before coming to CSC. We work with the children to teach proper dental care. We also have volunteer dentists who occasionally come to the shelter to provide free dental work. Currently, we have a few residents who have such severe dental problems that it is recommended that we set them up for regular dental care. Meriam and Michael are two of those kids. It is not that they need straight teeth for a nice smile. Rather, they need on-going dental work to repair years of damage. Among other things they have extra teeth, missing teeth, and teeth in the wrong places. This project helps to cover regular dental work for all of the children at the shelter, along with some extra help for a few of our residents.
