OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Going to the dentist can be stressful--especially for children. Some never even see a dentist.

To fight that issue, dental students from Creighton University bring their clinic to kids through the Give Kids a Smile program.

The program includes school-based tooth brushing instruction, fluoride varnish, dental sealant, and a dental voucher program for families who lack dental insurance.
