We were all smiles after receiving a $400,000 grant from the Engelstad Foundation to support dental education, prevention, and restorative health care to local at-risk youth in Southern Nevada.
The Protect Our Smiles Grant will help Future Smiles serve 6,000 at-risk children, from toddlers to teens, during the 2020-21 school year.
“Having access to dental care is essential for overall health, especially for youth,” said Kris Engelstad McGarry, Trustee of the Engelstad Foundation. “Children in underserved parts of the Las Vegas Valley need this care to maintain school attendance and an active lifestyle. By investing in Future Smiles, we are supporting vital dental services and education to those who need it most.”
Huge thanks to the Engelstad Foundation for investing in the health of our Valley’s most vulnerable children through this transformational gift!
