Kool Smiles teamed up with Virginia State Delegate Todd Pillion to deliver more than 5,000 free toothbrushes to children in Delegate Pillion’s district for the second consecutive year!
Delegate Pillion coordinated with school staff and Kool Smiles to plan an event for students focusing on the importance of preventive dental care – such as daily brushing, flossing and eating nutritious foods – to keep teeth healthy and free of cavities. Students also received the toothbrushes donated by Kool Smiles.
“There’s nothing more important than the success of our students,” said Pillion. “We know that good health- including good dental health- plays a role in their success, so I’m grateful to Kool Smiles for helping encourage good dental hygiene and providing access to quality, affordable dental care and education throughout the state.”
Delegate Pillion has long advocated for better dental healthcare access for underserved communities during his tenure in the Virginia House of Delegates. As a member of the Appropriations Elementary and Secondary Education Subcommittee, Pillion advocates for measures to improve education. Good oral health care is essential to the health and well-being of students and leads to improved student success.
We are proud to provide quality dental care children across Virginia, with 15 offices throughout the state. Our dentists regularly participate in local oral health education programs through partnerships with community leaders and organizations.
