TeamSmile and the Kansas City Royals kicked off the 2023 year with the first program at the KC Royals Urban Youth Academy. We were able to see and help 209 children from the Independence school district with free dental care and oral health education totalling over $118,000. At the Kansas City Royals program we were able to provide over 100 fillings, 30 extractions, 344 sealants and 161 prophylaxis cleanings. We want to thank SunLife/DentaQuest for sponsoring the Kansas City program.
