Give Kids A Smile Day
Local dentist honored for care to underserved children
Gilford- Dr. Melissa Kennell of Gilford, was one of seven individuals in the U.S. chosen to become a grant recipient and ambassador for the national Give Kids A Smile Day (GKAS). Kennell was invited to attend Give Kids A Smile University in St. Louis, MO where she received hands-on training and learned the inner workings of a successful GKAS program.
To be chosen, candidates had to demonstrate commitment and the ability to provide dental homes and continuity of care to underserved children through their own GKAS program.
Kennell, a general dentist, recently opened her own practice in Gilford, called Children’s Dentistry of the Lakes Region where she focuses on creating a comfortable and warm atmosphere that helps children enjoy visits to the dentist’s office.
