Local dentists partnered with Southern University today to 'give kids a smile'.

The event is part of the American Dental Associations 'National Children's Dental Health Month.'

Dentists volunteered to provide education, dental screenings and treatment to low income children who might not have access to proper dental care.

80 third grade students from Sunset Acres in Shreveport were able to receive the care.

Southern University at Shreveport volunteered use of their dental hygiene students and dental facility.

This is the 11th year the event has been held locally.
