Give Kids a Smile

February 4 & 5, 2022

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. Please read the program newsletter to learn more about last year’s event.
