Leaders from the American Dental Association, dental industry and local elected officials came to ASDOH to kick off the nation’s largest comprehensive care Give Kids a Smile Day (GKAS) event. Over 500 pre-screened children were treated to preventive-oriented dental care while being entertained at this dental student planned and managed event. ASDOH alums, faculty, staff and community volunteers engaged in the “most organized chaos” in the valley. The event was sponsored by Henry Schein, Colgate, Dexis, the AZDA Foundation and ATSU.
The returning ASDOH alums attended a recognition reception after the GKAS event and attended continuing education courses offered the next day.
