About Give Kids A Smile

The Give Kids A Smile® (GKAS) program, launched nationally in 2003 by the American Dental Association, provides underserved children with free oral health care. Each year approximately 6,500 dentists and 30,000 dental team members volunteer at local GKAS events to provide free oral health education, screenings, preventive and restorative treatment to over 300,000 children.  GKAS events are held throughout the year. To date, over 6 million underserved children have received free oral health services through the GKAS program.

Please register above.  There are limited appointments for this one-day event, however, our staff will ensure each child receives information to continue care at Howard University Pediatric Dentistry clinic.  Please read the COVID policy prior to registration and arrival.  For more information, you may contact us at (202) 250-6328
