Give Kids a Smile


The American Dental Association began the “Give Kids A Smile” program in 2003 as a way for dentists to join with others in the community to provide dental services to underserved children. For more information on the program, visit

Since the inception of the ECU School of Dental Medicine, faculty, residents, students, dental assistants, and dental hygienists have volunteered to deliver care to children in need at the local “Give Kids A Smile!” Day in Greenville, N.C., sponsored annually by the East Central Dental Society and geared to improving children’s oral and overall health.
