What is Give Kids A Smile?

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.

Give Kids A Smile will begin the National Kickoff on February 3, 2023. New Jersey locations and dates will be available on this page by December 15th.
