On February 1, 2013, local dentists will team up with the New Jersey Dental Association to deliver dental care to underprivileged children who otherwise may not be able to afford or access care. Each February, the dental community, both public and private sectors, comes together for Give Kids A Smile (GKAS). The program provides a multitude of services such as oral hygiene instruction, screenings, cleanings, x-rays, fillings, extractions, fluoride treatments, stainless steel crowns, and much more—for free! 

According to the American Dental Association (ADA), approximately 450,000 children will benefit from the GKAS events with help from over 40,000 volunteers who work to ensure the program is fun and educational, and that it gives many children a great first impression of visits to the dentists.
