Stephanie Klos, a junior from Roselle majoring in dental hygiene, examines the teeth of Shawnee Brown, 8, of Carbondale, during the annual “Give Kids a Smile Day” Friday at SIU.  This year, 105 University students, 15 faculty members and 9 volunteer dentists and hygienists from the community provided free dental care to about 175 children between the ages of 1 and about 14 years old.  Now in its 11th year, the service is in conjunction with the dental hygiene program, the Southern Illinois Dental Society and the Southern Illinois Dental Hygiene Society.  The dental hygiene program is in the School of Allied Health, which is within the College of Applied Sciences and Arts.  (Photo by Christi Mathis, The Saluki Times)
