Give Kids A Smile NYC is an award-winning initiative providing FREE educational and preventive dental services to children from low-income families.
It is part of a nationwide event bringing together dentists, dental staff, and other volunteers to provide much-needed dental care and education to those that need it most.
We are busy prepping for our upcoming GKAS event which will take place on February 7, 2020! This year we expect to provide clinical exams, fluoride treatment, and education on good dental habits to about 1,400 pre-k and elementary school children in East Harlem -- where children are well below average in getting the dental care they need to have healthy smiles. This event provides dental screenings and fluoride prevention to disadvantaged students, as well as dental education to the children, their parents, and teachers in a creative and fun atmosphere.
To make it all happen we need DONATIONS, in all sizes, to help us provide dental and non-dental supplies. We MUST reach our goal of $10,000 to be able to provide services to such a large number of children!
All donors will be acknowledged on our GKAS page on our website! See the photos and video from our event this past February below
