Give Kids A Smile (GKAS)
Give Kids A Smile is coming in 2021, but it will look a little different.
GKAS is a national event supported by the American Dental Association and it’s local chapters. Each year, over 350,000 children benefit from the services provided across the nation. This event is a way for dentists to join with the community to provide needed dental services to underserved children. This event will take place at several clinics throughout the San Diego County and FREE dental screenings, sealants and fluoride varnish will be provided to all children ages 0-18. The program will run between the dates of February 22 – March 19. You won’t even need to leave the comfort of your own office!
