WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

The children's dental provider, Kool Smiles, provided dozens of children with free dental care Sunday as part of Sharing Smiles Day.

This is the third year that the program has been active.

They said they know how tough it can be, especially for those who can't afford a routine trip to the dentist.

Jessica Gutierrez, Office Manager for the Kool Smiles location on Gregory Street, said the day is all about making sure kids are happy and healthy.

"We just want to make sure that we are able to provide to the children, so that's our main focus is making sure that regardless of financial issues everybody is able to receive the treatment and the care that they need," she said. "So even though we can only do it one day a year we just want to provide as much as we can to those patients."

Gutierrez also said that the Gregory Street location saw around 25 kids Sunday.

The company has seen around 1,400 patients at all their locations since they started Sharing Smiles Day in 2015.
