On Wednesday, October 5th, 2022, in honor of National Dental Hygiene Month, children ages 0-12 will have the opportunity to receive a free dental screening courtesy of the Florida Department of Health’s Miami-Dade offices. The event will take place between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. at Ronselli Park, 250 SW 114th Ave, Miami, FL 33174, in the City of Sweetwater. Screenings can be obtained via appointment only and will be granted on a first come, first served basis. Patients who do not confirm their appointments will be removed from the list and their spot will be passed on to a child that is on the waiting list.
This event has become possible thanks to the efforts of State Senator Ana Maria Rodriguez, State Representative Daniel Perez, State Representative David Borrero, City of Sweetwater Mayor Orlando Lopez, and the Florida Department of Health Miami-Dade.
“I am honored to team up with my colleagues Representatives Perez and Borrero, Mayor Orlando Lopez and Miami Dade’s Department of Health offices to bring such an important preventative treatment to children in Miami. I want to encourage parents and/or guardians to take advantage of this event and have their child’s teeth evaluated by a professional completely free of charge.” -Senator Ana Maria Rodriguez
