Why do you participate in Give Kids A Smile programs? Why is the program important?

Each day we help to connect GKAS programs across the country with resources to aid in improving access to dental care and to increase oral health literacy for children in America’s most underserved communities.

Please tell us a story about how your Give Kids A Smile program helped a child in need

Having attended various GKAS events, I have had the opportunity to witness the huge impact that these programs have on entire families. It’s great to see parents learning about the importance of dental care for themselves and their children and to see kids receiving and appreciating the much needed education, treatment, and product samples available to them. These programs definitely make a positive difference in their lives.
