Give Kids A Smile / American Dental Association

Get Ready to Bring Health Smiles to East Harlem on 2/2/24 by volunteering with Give Kids A Smile NYC!

On February 2, 2024, we will be holding the Give Kids A Smile (GKAS) NYC to provide critical dental screenings, preventive fluoride treatments, and dental hygiene education to approximately 1,600 underserved children in East Harlem. It is our 9th year hosting Give Kids A Smile and one of our most popular and beloved events! Don’t just take our word for it ... 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.
