For joining us at Meridian Dental-Family Dentistry in Anderson and Richmond for Give Kids A Smile. This was our second year offering FREE dental oral exams, and educational, preventive services to children ages 1-14 in honor of Children’s Dental Health Month. We had a great turn out and were happy to see many kiddos eager to start a healthy dental regimen.

About Give Kids A Smile
American Dental Association’s Give Kids A Smile® (GKAS) program ensures access to quality oral healthcare for all children and is an annual volunteer initiative. Thousands of dentists across the country will take time from their practices to help children who aren’t receiving the oral health care they need.
The ADA recognized that this grassroots effort had great potential to raise awareness nationally about the importance of oral health to overall health and about the staggering need that exists among millions of children who go without dental care.
So, in 2003, Give Kids A Smile evolved into a nationwide program with the goal of providing free oral health care to children.
