On March 1st The Provo District Dental Society spearheaded an effort to have the Utah College of Dental Hygiene (UCDH) sponsor the Utah County Give Kids A Smile (GKAS) Event which provided volunteer dental and dental hygiene services to over 150 children. Dr. Darren Chamberlin (the District President), the students and faculty of the Utah College of Dental Hygiene, Dr. Adam Shepherd, Dr. Gary Wiest (President of the Utah Dental Association) and twenty five other volunteer area dentists were all featured in a front page ADA News article (March 17th , 2014 Volume 45 No.6). This is the second time that the GKAS event and the participating students of the Utah College of Dental Hygiene (along with the volunteer dentists of The Provo District Dental Society) have been highlighted by the American Dental Association. View the article below of this newsworthy highlighting and featuring the combined partnership and efforts of the dental and dental hygiene communities in Utah.
