Give Kids A smile 2023
WHAT IS THE PROGRAM FOR?
The Give Kids A Smile® (GKAS) program, launched nationally in 2003, 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.
Dr. Kristina and her team of hygienists are excited to announce our first annual participation in the Give Kids A Smile® (GKAS) program here in Osceola, Wisconsin, Our event is for kids between 3 and 14 years old to have their preventative cleanings and exams at no cost to them. We believe every child should be able to have access to dental care whether they have dental insurance or not.
WHEN IS THE EVENT IN OSCEOLA, WISCONSIN?
This year, we have 6 team members will be volunteering from 12:30 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. on Friday, February 3rd. During this time, we will be able to see 16 children for their routine cleaning and exam appointments. For any restorative work, we will add your family to a waiting list where we can see your child as we have openings in our schedule. The preventative and restorative appointments are completed at no cost to your family so be sure to thank the staff for volunteering their time and expertise.
