Give Kids A Smile NYC 2019
Friday, February 1, 2019
We Had Our Most Successful GKAS NYC Event to Date! Volunteers and Students Enjoyed a Very Rewarding Day!
Earlier this year we helped bring healthy smiles to children in East and West Harlem and the Lower East Side!
GKAS offers a wonderful opportunity to help children, their parents, and teachers in under served neighborhoods learn about the importance of dental health and receive much needed screenings and preventive treatment. It is truly a benefit to the community and brings joy to all who participate!
Volunteer dentists provided cavity-preventing fluoride varnish, dental screenings, and oral hygiene education to nearly 1,400 children. It was a great team-building day with dental staff who helped assist in a number of important tasks. It was all done in a fun and festive environment.
We received support from local, state, and national politicians. The students, parents, and teachers benefited tremendously and so did our volunteers.
You’ll want to be part of this truly special community event in 2020.
Watch the video below to see why this event continues to be so special to us…and the children we continuously meet.
