Give Kids a Smile events planned in February

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, and many local dental societies and the ADA have events planned for Give Kids a Smile — an annual volunteer initiative to provide free dental screenings, treatment and education to underserved children. Registration is under way for the ADA-sponsored event Give Kids a Smile Day to be held on Feb. 7.

Dentists and dental professionals interested in participating in Give Kids a Smile 2014 are encouraged to contact their local dental societies for information on events in their communities. Approximately 1,500 events are planned nationwide.

The annual campaign has established itself in providing education and oral health care to nearly half a million underserved children each year.
