ABOUT GIVE KIDS a SMILE (GKAS) PROGRAM of the Ohio Dental Association:       

The annual Give Kids a Smile program of the Ohio Dental Association brings local dentists and other volunteers in Ohio together to educate, examine and/or treat children who do not have access to dental care.  Many children getting the free dental care have never been to a dentist before. GKAS Day was started by the American Dental Association in 2003 and has grown to “more than just a day” in many areas of Ohio. For more information, go to
