Gabriel House in Denver offered children another reason to smile: clean teeth and new toothbrushes.
Some 40 children received free preventative dental care and teeth cleaning supplies at Gabriel House in Denver. Gabriel House, a ministry of Catholic Charities that provides clothing, baby supplies and other items to mothers in need, offered dental exams in April.
Anastasia Petkova, DDS, of Happy Teeth in Denver, provided the exams and informed parents about any dental care their children needed. Children also received toothpaste and toothbrushes.
Petkova said she enjoys volunteering her time and service to the community and hopes to expand the dental program to other Gabriel Houses.
