There's a big bus parked outside our station today. Here's why.

February is National Children's Dental Health Month and Bethany for Children and Families is raising awareness with its Give Kids A Smile Mobile Dental Program. It's a 39-foot recreational bus that travels to schools and provides free dental care to children who are uninsured or low-income. Since the bus was launched in 2011, more than 20,000 children have benefited from its services.

During Good Morning Quad Cities on Monday, February 4th, we gave you a tour of the bus and talked to a dentist about why this program is so important for children in our community. Click the video above for our full conversation.
