Helping Children Through Give Kids A Smile

The American Dental Association began the Give Kids A Smile program in 2003 as a way for dentists to join with others in the community to provide dental services to underserved children. The program initially began as a one-day event in February, but has since grown to local and national events year-round. Dentists and other team members volunteer their time, and services, to provide screenings, treatments and education to children throughout the United States. Each year, approximately 400,000 children benefit from more than 1,500 events, all because of the efforts of 40,000 or more annual volunteers.

There are many exciting upcoming events for Give Kids A Smile:
