Give Kids a Smile

Each year, dental professionals from across the state participate in Give Kids a Smile, providing free dental care to children in need. The event takes place on the first Friday and Saturday of February and is made possible by the collaborative effort of the Minnesota Dental Association, Minnesota Dental Foundation, volunteer dentists, and our generous sponsors.


Dental professionals may wish to track volunteer service hours, which may now be applied as elective CE credits toward the new Minnesota Board of Dentistry CE/Professional Development requirements.  To help them document their participation in GKAS, the MDA has provided this simple Volunteer Certificate. Please note, one hour of volunteer service equals one elective CE credit.
