Register now for 2013 Give Kids A Smile Day
Registration is now open for Give Kids A Smile Day, which will be celebrated nationally Feb. 1, 2013. Register at ADA.org/givekidsasmile.aspx by Nov. 9 to be considered for free product donation. 2013 will mark the 11th year for GKAS, the program that helps more than 450,000 children each year receive much-needed access to oral health care.
Give Kids A Smile kicks off the first Friday of February, when thousands of dentists participate by providing screenings, cleanings, sealants and other treatments to underserved children. For many children, this is an opportunity to find a permanent dental home, and for dentists, it is a great way to be involved in helping the local community.
Give Kids A Smile is made possible through the generous support of corporate sponsors, Henry Schein, Colgate and DEXIS; dentists; and other oral health care professionals who volunteer their time and services to provide needed oral health care to underserved children.
The website also has information on how to get involved with the Give Kids A Smile program or expand an existing program, a GKAS Program Planning Guide and much more.
