Give Kids a Smile

Shasta Community Health Center’s Give Kids a Smile event for 2017 offers a FREE CHILDREN’S HEALTH FAIR.

Shasta Community Health Center participates in the American Dental Association's "Give Kids A Smile" national campaign offering free dental services to uninsured, low income children 1 to 18 years old. This is the centerpiece to National Children's Dental Health Month and is observed every year on the first Friday in February. The American Dental Association (ADA) launched the Give Kids A Smile program nationally in 2003 as a way for dental providers to join with others in the community to provide dental services to underserved children. Each year, about 350,000 to 400,000 children benefit from more than 1,500 events, all because of the efforts of 40,000 or more annual volunteers nationwide.  Shasta Community Health Center has participated since 2005 and served over 100 children each year.
