Free Dental Care for Hundreds of Local Children

Smiles were plentiful on February 6, Give Kids A Smile Day, when Georgia dentists provided free care to underserved children throughout the state. Give Kids A Smile Day is held annually in conjunction with National Children’s Dental Health Month with two goals in mind:

  • Provide free, easily accessible dental services to local, qualifying children
  • Raise awareness of untreated tooth decay in children and the importance of good oral health

Hosted by the Georgia Dental Association, dentists and their staff volunteers provide an estimated $100,000+ of donated dental services in one day to more than 500 of Georgia's children in need through this outreach program.

Give Kids a Smile Day is part of a nationwide initiative launched by the American Dental Association in 2003. Each year, more than 350,000 children nationwide benefit from these events.
