Among all the exciting developments going on at Magnuson Park — a new, multimillion indoor soccer facility, new indoor tennis center, new turf sports fields, low-income housing — this one might have the biggest impact yet on the community: a new $21 million pediatric dental center.

Opening Sept. 1, the Center for Pediatric Dentistry, located at 6222 NE 74th St., is a partnership of the University of Washington School of Dentistry, Seattle Children’s hospital, Washington Dental Service and Washington Dental Service Foundation.

The center expects 30,000 visits the first year and will be using a whole new model for pediatric dentistry aimed helping keep kids out of the dental chair in the first place. The new center’s goals and what is driving the effort are outlined in an article by our news partner The Seattle Times.

Kids health fair Saturday at Seattle Children's

March 11th, 2010 by hillaryu

Free bike helmets, tours of an operating room and the opportunity to ask questions about the health of your kids are all part of this Saturday’s Seattle Children’s Health Fair.

The event, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., is being touted as a “hands-on” community event directed mostly at kids age 3 to 8 but good for the whole family. Other highlights are expected to be crafts and music, the Teddy Bear Clinic (kids are encouraged to bring their favorite stuffed animal for a checkup), and the Tooth Fairy (who will be available for chats). Quantities are limited on bike helmets and the child getting the helmet must be present to ensure proper fit.
