Give Kids A Smile®
On the first Friday in February, as part of National Children’s Dental Health Month, thousands of dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, dental students, the public health community, and other volunteers come together to provide free oral health services to underserved children across the state and across the country. The oral health services are critical, but they also serve to highlight to policymakers the challenges disadvantaged children face accessing dental care. Many of these kids are unable to eat or sleep, can’t pay attention in school, and risk more serious health problems because of their poor oral health.
NCDS members have been involved in Give Kids a Smile since 2003. In each county, our membership provides dental treatment, prevention, and educational programs designed to fit the community. Please join us and help however you can.
