University of Michigan School of Dentistry to Give Kids a Smile 

Give Kids a Smile (GKAS) is a charitable one-day event in which the first 100 kids, between the ages of 5 and 14 years old, preferably without dental insurance, will receive free dental care. Available services include dental cleanings, x-rays, sealants, fillings and extractions.

First come, first serve! Registration starts at 8:30 a.m. on April 5, 2014. Doors will open shortly before registration begins, and close once capacity is reached. Be sure to arrive early, as space is limited to the first 100 children.

GKAS is made possible by the hundreds of volunteers, which include students and facility members of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, as well as member dentists of the Washtenaw District Dental Society.

University of Michigan School of Dentistry, located at 1011 N. University Ave, Ann Arbor, MI 48109. Free parking will be available at the Fletcher Parking Structure, which is connected to the school.

Dental disease is almost entirely preventable. The goal of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry’s GKAS event is to help prevent dental disease from occurring and to treat dental disease that has already taken place.
