Spread the word about Give Kids a Smile



On February 5 and 6, 2016, Minnesota children in need will have access to free dental care, thanks to the thousands of dental professionals who volunteer with the Minnesota Dental Association's annual charitable event, "Give Kids a Smile."

While we do not yet have the complete list of participating dental clinics (that will be available in the beginning of January 2016), free care will likely be in your area or in a community nearby. Though there are no eligibility requirements, this program is intended to help children from those families who face barriers to obtaining dental care.

To find out more about Give Kids a Smile, please visit www.mndental.org/gkas. Once there, you can:

  • Sign up to receive Give Kids a Smile email notices.
  • "Like us" on Facebook.
  • Click the Patients tab on the left side of the page and find an assortment of flyers to share with families in need. Some are available in multiple languages.
