Special Smiles®


The Special Smiles discipline of Healthy Athletes® provides comprehensive oral health care information and offers free dental screenings and instructions on correct brushing and flossing techniques to participating Special Olympics athletes. Athletes participating Special Smiles at Summer Games also can elect to take part in the MOM Project, which provides free dental care thanks to the Virginia Dental Association Foundation.
