On February 3, 2018, DCI 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. Dental clinics and schools from across the U.S. participate in this event.
With the help of 44 volunteers and support from 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 program in 2012, DCI has provided free dental care to 568 children. Which amounts 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 on Saturday, February 2, 2019.
