SmileLine to answer questions for a day

WEDNESDAY, July 3, 2002 (HealthDayNews) -- Here's something to put a smile on your face: a toll-free hotline to answer all your dental questions.

The SmileLine, sponsored by the Academy of General Dentistry to help celebrate its 50th anniversary, will be available only on July 5.

Dentists attending the group's annual meeting in Hawaii will man the phones to answer questions on all matters involving oral health, from toothaches to bleaching teeth.

The SmileLine will operate from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. EDT. The toll-free number is 1-800-SMILE-33 (1-800-764-5333).

The academy also operates SmileLine Online 24 hours a day, year-round. Once on the site, click on the big red grin to post questions that are answered within 24 hours.
