Volunteers from the Smile Generation worked with KaBOOM! to build a playground in six hours and provide free dental care at the Trinity Basin Preparatory-Pafford campus in Fort Worth, Texas. 

In collaboration with the Pacific Dental Services Foundation’s Mobile Dental Clinic, 22 Smile Generation-trusted dentists and volunteers provided 48 members of the community with $21,201 in donated dentistry, including cleanings, x-rays, scaling, root planing, restorations, and extractions.

“This event was extra special because it was the Smile Generation’s fifteenth playground build with KaBOOM!” said Kyle Guerin, director of the Smile Generation.

“It’s always heartwarming to see the impact that we can make in a community, especially when that community involves kids. The students of Trinity Basin Preparatory-Pafford now have the opportunity to do what kids should do during recess and after school, and that’s to play,” Guerin said.

Trinity Basin Preparatory is a free public charter school that opened in 1998. With campuses in Dallas, Fort Worth, and one opening soon in Mesquite, more than 3,500 students are provided with a safe, disciplined learning environment to meet all individual academic, physical, and emotional needs.
