Dental Advice Doled Out For Free

Experts will field questions on toll-free hotline on July 15

WEDNESDAY, July 13, 2005 (HealthDay News) -- Free dental advice and answers to questions about oral health will be provided by more than 100 dental experts taking part in SmileLine, a toll-free, U.S. national dental health hotline on July 15.

SmileLine is presented by the Academy of General Denistry (AGD). Consumers can call SmileLine at 1-800-764-5333 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET and speak one-on-one with a dental expert.

"AGD is committed to serve as a lifelong resource for oral health information, and the annual SmileLine is just one example of our many educational programs. Each year, a network of our members volunteer their medical expertise to field questions about dental health at all stages of life and AGD's SmileLine has fielded questions from more than 15,000 consumers to date," Dr. John Kokai, 2005 SmileLine coordinator, said in a prepared statement.

People who miss the SmileLine hotline can go to SmileLine Online at the AGD Web site. Go to the Web site and click on the "Ask a Dental Question" link.
