Helping Children Through Give Kids A Smile® 

Be a part of the GKAS movement!

Through the ADA Foundation's Give Kids A Smile program, launched nationally by the American Dental Association in 2003, more than 5.5 million underserved children have received free oral health services. These free services are provided by volunteers including approximately 10,000 dentists annually, along with 30,000 other dental team members. Read about the history of GKAS, or make a donation.
