Healthy Athletes – Special Smiles

Saturday, October 17 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm

| Free

At a Special Olympics Wisconsin (SOWI) Special Smiles event, dental professionals provide screenings, health education and prevention services and refer athletes for follow-up care. Athletes are given a goodie bag with a new tooth brush, tooth paste and dental floss. Athletes that have completed a permission slip can also receive a fluoride varnish.  Special Smiles is made possible with the support of Delta Dental of Wisconsin.

Special Smiles Goals:

  1. Increase access to dental care for Special Olympics athletes, as well as all people with intellectual disabilities.
  2. Raise dental professionals’ awareness of the oral health concerns of people with special needs, including difficulties involved in accessing care.
  3. Develop a body of knowledge about the oral healthcare needs of children and adults with disabilities.

Any athlete with a current medical and consent form with SOWI can attend.  Athletes do not have to be competing in the tournament to participate in Healthy Athletes!
