First timers: Students and children celebrate during the Touro College of Dental Medicine at New York Medical College and the Ninth District Dental Association's Feb. 16 Give Kids A Smile event. It was the first time the college has held a GKAS event, and more than 40 preschool and elementary students from the Westchester Country, N.Y.-area received free dental screenings, fluoride treatments and cleanings. The children also received oral health tips from Touro students. Dr. Bhagwati J.
