Help Underserved Children Through Give Kids A Smile®

Helping Children

Since 2003, the ADA's Give Kids A Smile program has enhanced the oral health of large numbers of underserved children. Each year, more than 40,000 annual volunteers provide dental care to approximately 450,000 kids. The program, which initially began as a one-day event, has since grown into more than 1,500 local and national events throughout the year.

The ADA’s Give Kids A Smile program is a great way to volunteer your talents to help those who may not otherwise get dental care.

The Who, What and Why of Give Kids A Smile

  • Dentists and other team members volunteer their time and services to provide screenings, treatments and education to children throughout the United States.
  • Corporate sponsors provide support and materials to make the program possible.
  • For policy makers, Give Kids A Smile activities highlight the ongoing challenges that disadvantaged families face in finding dental care.
