Give Kids A Smile / American Dental Association

Give Kids A Smile NYC 2023 was a great success!

Despite the cold temps on February 3, we had over 125 volunteers provide dental screenings and preventive fluoride treatment to 1250 children (pre-school to middle school) at seven school sites and teach essential oral health education to an even greater number of children. Take a look at the photos and the NY1 (Spanish NY1) video coverage and you’ll see why this event is so popular with the schools, the children and our volunteers.

A big shout-out to all our volunteers -- you make it all possible!

Save the Date! Give Kids A Smile NYC 2024 will be held on Friday, February 2nd, 2024.

Sign up form will be added in the summer.

The Give Kids A Smile NYC 2023 leadership was invited by the Henry Schein Cares Foundation, along with other health-focused organizations, to open up Nasdaq on February 6!
