Sign Up for 2017 Give Kids A Smile!
Members, are you looking for ways to get involved in charitable work and give back to your community? Consider hosting a Give Kids A Smile event!
Through the ADA Foundation's Give Kids A Smile program, launched nationally by the American Dental Association in 2003, more than 5 million underserved children have received free oral health services. These free services are provided by approximately 10,000 dentists annually, along with 30,000 other dental team members.
If you sign up your program by November 7, you are eligible to receive free product donations for your event.
Don't know where to begin? Using the ADA's GKAS Planning Toolbox is a good first step in planning your event.
Some new, exciting elements to GKAS this year include:
- Dental Sealant Kits: Each professional GKAS product kit will contain an introductory sealant kit that can provide approximately 140 sealant applications.
- GKAS Continuity of Care Grants: The ADA Foundation will provide grants of up to $10,000 to assist nonprofit organizations whose GKAS program will offer continuity of care to underserved children following their 2017 GKAS visit. The application period is open and the deadline is November 11, 2016. Please visit the ADA Foundation Access to Care web page for additional details, including a link to the application.
- Lands' End GKAS Promotion: GKAS program coordinators can receive a 10% discount on all apparel as well as free application of the GKAS logo. The attached Lands’ End flier includes the promo code along with additional details regarding the promotion.
- GKAS 15th Anniversary: Give Kids A Smile will celebrate its 15th anniversary in 2017. Over the next few months the ADA Foundation will provide you with tools and resources so you can join in the celebration. We’re on our way to making GKAS’ 15th anniversary year the best yet!
