The County’s Dental Health Initiative-Share the Care program, the San Diego Dental Health Foundation, First 5 San Diego, and seven community dental clinics are again coming together for the Annual Give Kids a Smile (GKAS) event to provide free screenings, dental sealants, and fluoride varnish to children ages 1 to 18 years on Saturday, February 22, from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm.

The services provided are painless, cost effective, and cost less than fixing a tooth if a cavity develops. Fluoride varnish is a special fluoride coating painted on all teeth, and dental sealants are a special coating placed on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. All public school children are required to have an oral health screening upon entering kindergarten and this event satisfies that requirement as well! Participants can receive a completed oral health assessment form for school.

Check back soon for the official flier!
