Give Kids A Smile Day
Give Kids A Smile (GKAS) Day, a national campaign of the ADA celebrating National Children’s Dental Health Month, focuses on the epidemic of untreated oral disease among disadvantaged youth. The GHDS, UT School of Dentistry – Houston and partners provided free dental treatment and education to 296 kids at a value of $207,628 in dental services for the 2019 GKAS Day. Many thanks to sponsors support, and participants who donated their time and talents serve children and teens from local communities.
The 2020 GKAS Day was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
A future GKAS Day is expected to be held on Friday, February 26, 2021. More information about the program will be forthcoming and will be communicated when it is developed.
