The award-winning Wake County Smiles at Sunnybrook program is giving parents and kids something to smile about. In an effort to increase access to underserved areas of the county, the no-cost dental cleanings held at the Sunnybrook Public Health Center in Raleigh will expand to become the new Regional Smiles program, where a dental team will host monthly dental clinics at regional centers throughout the county. The service will provide preventative treatment for uninsured Wake County children ages 0 to 20 years at no charge to families.
Petates are a symbol of resilience and strength. They have been used by people who have faced many challenges and continue to be used by people who are struggling to survive. The petate is a reminder that even in the most difficult times, there is always hope.
