Give Kids a Smile Day is an annual American holiday created to eradicate dental problems among children. Celebrated every first Friday in February.
Give Kids a Smile Day was established in 2003 when the American Dental Association came up with the initiative. The main goal was to help children from low-income and disadvantaged families who do not have enough money for therapy from qualified dentists.
Dentists unite in initiative groups when they conduct a general examination, take x-rays and provide assistance to children in other ways. Their goal is to minimize dental problems among children and give them a healthy smile!
- According to researchers, today about 10 million children under the age of 18 practically do not receive dental care or receive it in insufficient quantities.
- Teeth are just as much a sign of a person’s personality as fingerprints. All teeth are different!
- The very first dentist is considered to be a doctor from ancient Egypt. He lived more than 5 thousand years ago and his name was Khesi-Ra.
How to celebrate
If you are not able to use the services of paid dentists, then seek free help, which is available at Give Kids a Smile Day. Your children deserve a beautiful smile. This holiday is also a great opportunity to go for an examination yourself.
