February is National Children's Dental Health Month.  To celebrate, we will have a special guest on the KY Smiles on Talking FACS podcast each week to discuss issues related to children's dental health.  This week our last guest for the month, Dr. Nikki Stone discusses the success of the North Fork Valley Clinic in Hazard.  She shares how the clinic has been able to improve the oral health of children who were previously not being seen by dentists at all.
