What is Give Kids A Smile®?

Give Kids A Smile® is a program sponsored by the ADA. The goal of the program is to enhance the oral health of children in need. Each year on the first Friday in February, thousands of dental teams around the nation provide free oral health care services to children from low-income families. In 2008, the ADA expanded the program to include more than one day.

Connecticut dentists are participating in the program, as well, doing their part to assist children in maintaining a healthy smile. Many Connecticut dental teams participate in the program not just on this day, but provide free dental services to children of low-income families throughout the year.
