We’re Giving Kids A Smile During Children’s Dental Health Month

GKAS 2017 Event_Blog

February is National Children’s Dental Health month, and Englewood Dental is celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Give Kids A Smile program and hosting their 3rd annual Give Kids A Smile® event to provide underserved children with free dental services. This year’s event will be held on February 3, 2017, from 9am to 1pm.

Give Kids A Smile is held annually to:

  • Provide free, easily accessible dental services to qualifying individuals.
  • Raise awareness of the epidemic of untreated dental disease occurring locally and nationally and create local public and private partnerships to increase access to oral health care to solve this crisis.

The American Dental Association (ADA) launched the Give Kids A Smile program as a way for dentists to join with others in the community to provide dental services to underserved children. Since its launch, more than 5.5 million children have received free dental services.
