I-Smile Program ….

Throughout the state of Iowa children go without dental services, even those in need of immediate dental care. To provide a solution to this problem, the Iowa Department of Public Health has created the I-Smile Program. The ultimate goal of the program is to ensure that all children receive age appropriate dental care by allowing families to establish a “dental home” when they were unable to in the past.
