Give Kids a Smile Day brings smiles to underserved area children

While many were completing their taxes, ASDOH took part in Give Kids a Smile Day (GKAS) which is sponsored by the ADA and its state affiliates.  ASDOH partnered with the Arizona State Dental Association Foundation to conduct the event.

The event is coordinated and led by ASDOH students.  ASDOH faculty, staff and alumni participated contributing to a very successful day.  The children who participated are from area schools and enrolled in their schools’ free and reduced lunch programs and were prescreened by school nurses.  In addition to receiving needed dental care, these children were treated to a fun day of activities.  Over 330 children, a new record of participation, the most the school has had in its seven-year history of having GKAS at the school.

  1. As a D1, my role at GKAS was probably one of the most fun things I’ve done in a long time. Playing with the children in the parking lot is not the most glamous, but certainly necessary, and the dance-offs were totally unforgettable. Made me love ASDOH with new fervor.

    Also: I like how all your posts are ‘Uncategorized’. That is so Dr. Dillenberg. Completely Uncategorizable
