GKAS 2021 was a huge success, with over 200 families served for free by 30+ participating dental providers.
The Give Kids A Smile® (GKAS) program, launched nationally in 2003, provides underserved children with free oral health care. Each year approximately 6,500 dentists and 30,000 dental team members volunteer at local GKAS events to provide free oral health education, screenings, preventive and restorative treatment to over 300,000 children nationwide. GKAS events kick off annually on the first Friday in February, which is Give Kids A Smile Day. GKAS events are held throughout the year. To-date, over 6 million underserved children have received free oral health services through the GKAS program.
Each year, the San Diego County Dental Foundation partners with private practice dentists and public clinics to provide free oral health care to hundreds of underserved kids in our region.
