On February 3, 2018, Dental Care International held its 7th Annual Give Kids A Smile Event Presented by Nevada State Bank.
Give Kids A Smile is an American Dental Association nationwide program that offers free dental services to under-resourced children whose families are uninsured. Both dental clinics and dental schools across the United States participate in this annual event to provide care to those who are most in need.
With the help of 44 volunteers and support from our presenting sponsor Nevada State Bank, DCI provided free dental care to 59 children at our Las Vegas clinic. The total amount of donated services generated by our dental professionals was over $45,500!
Since joining the ADA program in 2012, DCI has provided free dental care to 568 children amounting to over $360,000 in donated dental services.
DCI plans to continue providing free dental care to under-resourced children in their Las Vegas community. Next year’s annual GKAS event will be held on Saturday, February 2, 2019.
If you are interested in supporting DCI’s event, you can make a donation, donate supplies, volunteer or become a corporate sponsor. Please email Dane Jonas at Dane@dcare.org with any questions.
