Give Kids A Smile
Free Dental Care for Kids-in-Need Under the Age of 12
An annual program initiated by the American Dental Association in 2003 called Give Kids a Smile is scheduled for the entire month of February 2021 at locations in every county in New Jersey, providing needy children throughout the state with access to free dental care. Since the program began, thousands of children age 12 and under have received millions of dollars worth of free dental services at locations across the state. View the list of particpating locations.
Parents, guardians, school nurses and community leaders have taken advantage of this incredible opportunity each year to provide free dental care for children in need. The event also offers an opportunity to introduce children to dentistry via this positive, fun-filled experience of learning about the importance of oral health.
You must call ahead to make an appointment for the child to be seen and all children must be accompanied by an adult. If your child is unable to be seen during February, find free/low cost dental care in your area by using the New Jersey Dental Clinic Directory or search the NJ 211 resource database.
