Give Kids A Smile®
On the first Friday in February, as part of National Children’s Dental Health Month, thousands of dentists across the country will take time from their practices to help underserved children get the oral health care they need.
Give Kids A Smile is an annual volunteer program that provides free educational, preventative and restorative services to children from low-income families. Many of these children are unable to eat, sleep or pay attention in school, ultimately risking more serious health problems because of their poor oral health.
For 15 years, NC Dental Society members have participated in the Give Kids A Smile program by providing complimentary screenings, treatment and oral health education. In 2019, we are aiming for participation among all 100 North Carolina counties, and we need your help. Register today to host or participate in a Give Kids A Smile event.
It’s important to register so we can keep track of all the great work that is going on in NC and across the country.
