Dr. James Paschal talks about helping children who are uninsured or underinsured

The 9th annual "Give Kids a Smile" event is Saturday, February 2 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Champagne Family Dentistry at 735 Sparks Boulevard in Sparks.

The event will provide free dental treatment for under-served and uninsured children who are under the age of 18.

Meet 12-year-old Joaquin Cerda. He enjoys playing basketball with his friends each week at his neighborhood Boys and Girls Club. He is the child the "Give Kids a Smile" event is for.

Nothing stopped him from running up and down the court, but that wasn't always the case. One day his tooth started to hurt. On a scale of one to ten, with ten being the worst, Joaquin said his pain was at an eight.

He said it was hard to sleep and concentrate in class so he took action.

"I went to the nurse at school because my teeth were really bothering me," said Joaquin.</h3

"I went to the nurse at school because my teeth were really bothering me," said Joaquin.

"They're referred through the program here and we just get the name of somebody who is coming in and they show up here and we take care of whatever they need," said Dr. Paschal.

The services include filling cavities, cleanings, x-rays, tooth removal, and minor orthodontics.

Turns out Joaquin was suffering from an infection. He was quickly treated.

KOLO 8 News Now's Noah Bond asked Joaquin, "After you went to the dentist, how long did it take for the pain to go away?" Joaquin responded, "Like a few hours."
