One day each year, the HealthLinc dental team volunteers their time and services to celebrate Give Kids A Smile by providing screenings, treatments and education to uninsured and underinsured children. The American Dental Association began Give Kids a Smile in 2003 as a national initiative to help low-income children receive dental care.  Each year, approximately 450,000 children benefit from more than 1,500 events nationwide.
