Give Kids a Smile
What is Give Kids a Smile (GKAS)?
This critical volunteer program provides care to kids around Idaho. With the help of programs like Idaho’s, nearly 300,000 underserved children received much needed oral health services through Give Kids A Smile in 2022This program is meant only for children without any sort of coverage and kids under 18 years old. Your office can also provide a waiver for the parents to sign to avoid this.
What is expected of a GKAS volunteer?
The only expectation of a GKAS visit is a cleaning and basic oral health education - fillings and further work are at your discretion. You can refer children out for further work. We encourage specialists to sign-up for referrals.

How do we get the word out about our event?
