Since 2005, Give Kids A Smile Day!, a program of Community Action Partnership, has been serving the dental needs of the underserved children of Sonoma County. In the past ten years, Give Kids A Smile Day! has provided dental services to over 3,100 children who would not have otherwise had access to care.
History of Give Kids A Smile! Day in the U.S.
The American Dental Association launched the Give Kids A Smile program nationally in 2003 as a way for dentists across the country to join with others in their community to provide dental services to underserved children. The program initially began as a one-day event in February, but has since grown to local and national events year-round. Dentists and other team members volunteer their time, and services, to provide screenings, treatments and education to children throughout the United States. Each year, approximately 450,000 children benefit from more than 1,500 events, all because of the efforts of 40,000 or more annual volunteers.
More than 16 million children nationwide have tooth decay. A disproportionate share of tooth decay, approximately 80 percent, is suffered by our poorest children. That’s why the objectives of Give Kids A Smile are so important.
