Veterans Smile Day - The Greater Houston Dental Society has partnered with Welch Dental Group to host its second successful Veterans Smile Day "Serving Those Who Have Served: The primary purpose of this event is to provide emergent and primary dental care, free-of-charge, for those segments of the veteran population that have no other means of access to dental care. This is a community-led event attracting dental professionals, veterans affairs groups, and others who want to be a part of a rewarding project that makes a positive difference in the lives of hundreds of nation’s neglected veterans. On November 5, 2016 over 150 volunteers came out for the event and we were able to treat nearly 200 local veterans with dental services including x-rays, exams, cleanings, fillings, and extractions. Our sincere appreciation to the volunteers, supporters and sponsors of the event. Visit the GHDS Facebook page for a collection of photos and video from the November 5th event.
Give Kids a Smile Day – The GHDS also supports the local community through non-profit events, such as the annual Give Kids a Smile Day. In conjunction with the University of Texas School of Dentistry , the Greater Houston Dental Alliance (GHDA), and San Jose Clinic, together, these partners have provided free dental care and education to over 300 children and adolescents from underserved Greater Houston communities for Give Kids A Smile Day. In February 2014, Give Kids A Smile was held in conjunction with the Texas Mission of Mercy event.
