The Indiana University Health La Porte Dental Center is offering free dental exams to children to kids with no dental insurance. The exams are by appointment only on August 4th, 5th, 7th and 8th from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. and August 6th and 13th from 4 p.m until 6 p.m. Not only will children receive an exam that fulfills area school requirements but children will also get a free bag of dental-related gifts. Dr. Robert Grace or Dr. Manogna Katakam will do a visual exam, create a dental map of the child’s teeth and diagnose any decay or other issues. If a child requires follow-up care they may be referred for follow-up appointments at IU Health La Porte Dental Center or to a community dentist who can meet their needs.
