Nothing like a child's smile

Dr. Amanda Darty Waits provides dental care to 9-year-old Saul Vega during this year’s “Give a Kid A Smile” program. Vega’s sister Yuly, 5, above, got a Cinderella toothbrush after her cleaning.

Dr. Waits joined Dr. Charles Betts, not shown, for this year’s event. As part of a national effort started in 2002, Betts began giving free dental care to low-income families picked by Parents And Teachers Together.

In 2005, he provided $9,000 in services to 20 children. The youths get a variety of care, including cleanings, fillings, X-rays and pulled teeth.
