CNS – With all incoming kindergartners and first graders now required by law to under go dental check ups, the USC School of Dentistry is preparing to offer free oral health assessments for children and their families, the university has announced.

New legislation, which took effect in January, now makes a dental check up part of the health requirements for children entering elementary school in kindergarten or the first grade.

During the university’s “First Annual Family Dental Fair” children and their families will receive a free oral health assessment. Children can also participate in games, receive a free book and visit with the tooth fairy.

The “First Annual Family Dental Fair” is from 10a.m. to 2p.m. July 21 at 925 W. 34th Street, near USC.
