GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) -- Miss Colorado USA making sure Grand Valley kids have their pearly whites looking their best.

Grand Junction's Chloe Brown was at MarillacHealth for their annual Give Kids A Smile event Thursday. It helps provide uninsured kids and teens with free dental services.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly one in four children aged two to 11 has untreated cavities in their baby teeth.

"I've been a certified dental assistant since I was 16 and this is something that is so much fun," Brown said. "If you brush your teeth, floss and make sure you're getting regular check-ups, it's the most important things."

Brown says she had a lot of dental and orthodontic work done growing up, and it's part of her inspiration to get into the dental and healthcare field.
