Give Kids A Smile!


On the first Friday in February, Virginia Dentists, along with other dental professionals from across the country, provide free oral health care services to thousands of underserved children through Give Kids a Smile.

A program of the American Dental Association, Give Kids a Smile focuses on offering oral health education to all children while providing free preventive and restorative care to the kids that need it most.

Efforts range from community outreach/and education programs at schools to donated full mouth restorations for those children requiring extensive care. Additionally, Give Kids A Smile highlights for policymakers the ongoing challenges that underserved children and children with disabilities face in accessing dental care.

The Virginia Dental Association Foundation functions as an umbrella for the numerous Give Kids a Smile education, screening, prevention and treatment programs held annually across our state, serving as a resource for these events, aggregating the results, and effectively communicating them to stakeholders.
