Up to 100 uninsured kids will have the chance to receive free dental care on Thursday courtesy of the "Give Kids A Smile" program. 

Kids up to 18-years-old will receive fillings, extraction, and "baby teeth" root canals at the event. 

The event was created by the American Dental Association "to reduce school absenteeism by eliminating oral pain," according to a news release. 

The service will be offered Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Southwest Kids Dentistry, 6970 North Oracle Road, Suite 110.
