Dental pain is often the reason a child is absent from school. Poor oral health has been shown to have a direct impact on a child’s attendance and performance. We have partnered with Horry County schools and Head Start Centers in both Horry and Georgetown counties to make exceptional dental services available to all children.

Our school-based mobile dental program, Miles for Smiles, provides a full range of preventive and restorative dental services to children on campus during regular school hours. Through our fun and educational approach to care, our Miles for Smiles team can help your child understand why a healthy smile matters and how to maintain that healthy smile.
