The Biggest Smile in Texas begins its travels around Austin to celebrate Smile Week, February 11-14, and the 15th Anniversary of St. David’s Dental Program in three new Mobile Dental Vehicles constructed on the state-of-the-art Lonestar platform available only from Mobile Specialty Vehicles.
Following the kick off celebration, a Foundation dental van toting the Big Smile departed from Long Center to begin its travel to popular locations across Travis, Williamson and Hays counties. Along the way, staff will be giving away 15,000 toothbrushes to promote the importance of keeping teeth healthy and bright. Visitors are invited to pose for photos with the Big Smile.
St. David’s is encouraging people to find the dental van and flash their pearly whites, then post their photo to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #SmileWeekATX. Participants will have a chance to win two tickets to Austin City Limits Music Festival 2014.
A leader in the field of mobile dental health, St. David’s Dental Program offers free dental care to low-income schools and social service agencies across central Texas. In addition, the Healthy Smiles program provides grants to community-based dental clinics and programs.
