Although PDG has been participating in GKAS since 2009, the nationwide event is celebrating its 15th year.
In 2002, two dentist from St. Louis held the first Give Kids A Smile® (GKAS) event in a soon-to-be-demolished dental clinic, where 15 patient chairs were scraped together to deliver free dental care to nearly 400 children.

The American Dental Association (ADA) recognized that this grassroots effort had great potential to raise awareness nationally about the importance of oral health to overall health, and about the staggering need that exists among millions of children who go without care. So in 2003, Give Kids A Smile evolved into a nationwide program with the collaboration of the ADA, Henry Schein, Procter & Gamble, and DEXIS.
Each year, thousands of dentists and volunteers give their time to provide free oral health education, screenings, and treatment to underserved children. More than 5.5 million children have been cared for by more than half a million volunteers since 2003. Petaluma Dental Group is proud to be a part of this critical piece of the ADA’s Action for Dental Health, a nationwide, community-based movement aimed at ending the dental health crisis facing America today.
