Image of Give Kids a Smile ADA LogoGive Kids A Smile program coordinators should sign up their 2021 event between Oct. 1 and Nov. 13 to be eligible to receive donated product kits.
   
To sign up their events for 2021 and access resources, program coordinators can visit ADA.org/GKAS, which also includes the GKAS data collection system and Toolbox program planning guides, sample forms, letters and other materials to help organize your event.
   
Through the ADA’s Give Kids A Smile program, launched nationally in 2003, more than 6 million underserved children have received free oral health services.
   
In 2020, these free services were provided by nearly 27,000 dental team members, and more than 6,500 dentists. GKAS would not be possible without the continued support from national sponsors Henry Schein and Colgate, in addition to the many Henry Schein supplier partners who donate products.
   
Although GKAS will be celebrated nationally in February during National Children’s Dental Health Month, many activities take place throughout the year, such as GKAS back-to-school events held in August.
