SJDS Foundation Give Kids a Smile
Saturday, February 24

The San Joaquin Dental Society Foundation hosts a yearly Give-Kids-a-Smile (GKAS) event that provides pro-bono dental treatment and hygiene services to the underserved and under-insured children in the San Joaquin County area. Treatment is provided regardless of insurance. The 2024 GKAS will be held Saturday, February 24th at St. Mary's Community Services in Stockton.

At the 2023 Give-Kids-a-Smile day, the Foundation and volunteer SJDS members were able to provide over $51,000 worth of pro-bono dentistry to 85 kids that were either uninsured or underinsured. Funding for GKAS is mainly raised through the SJDS Foundation Golf Tournament Fundraiser, but you can also donate directly to the Foundation here.
