Each year, in a set-up reminiscent of a M.A.S.H. unit, volunteer dentists, hygienists, assistants, residents, dental students, hygiene students, and administrative workers team up to provide dental care to the underserved of Northern Virginia. Hundreds of patients receive assistance over this two-day event. Volunteers coming away from this project described themselves as feeling, “enriched beyond measure.”
Thank you for your overwhelming response to the call for volunteers!
All shifts have been filled and confirmations sent out.
Give Kids a Smile (GKAS) Project

Helping Children Through Give Kids a Smile
The American Dental Association began the Give Kids A Smile program in 2003 as a way for dentists to join with others in the community to provide dental services to underserved children. The program initially began as a one-day event in February, but has since grown to local and national events year-round. Dentists and other team members volunteer their time, and services, to provide screenings, treatments and education to children throughout the United States. Each year, approximately 450,000 children benefit from more than 1500 events, all because of the efforts of 40,000 or more annual volunteers.
Thank you for all of your continued support!
