Jan. 30, 2014 @ 02:23 PM

Free dental services for children ages 5 to 18 will be offered Feb. 7 at the Durham County Department of Public Health.

The 10th annual event is hosted by the Health Department, with help from dental professionals in the community.

It will be from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Health Department's dental clinic, lobby 21, at 414 E. Main St. in Durham.

Registration for the event is now full.

Last year, the Give Kids A Smile event served 40 children and provided nearly $10,000 in free oral health services.

The event is held yearly to give access to dental care to children in Durham County who are uninsured or underinsured and have no dentist.
