The ADA Foundation’s website (ADAFoundation.org) offers resources to find free or reduced-cost dental care for your child.
Give Kids A Smile®: Through Give Kids A Smile, children who may not have access to dental care can receive free oral health education, screenings, preventive care, and/or treatment from volunteer dentists and other volunteer dental professionals. Many GKAS events take place in February, which is also National Children’s Dental Health Month, but other events are held throughout the year. To get contact information for the Give Kids A Smile program nearest to you, call 844.490.GKAS (4527).
More than 5.5 million children have received free oral health services through Give Kids A Smile since the national program began in 2003.
