For more than 150 years, the American Dental Association (ADA) has advocated for oral health in communities across the United States. Every year, ADA members volunteer thousands of hours with initiatives such as Donated Dental Services, Missions of Mercy, and Give Kids A Smile.

Donated Dental Services (DDS): Organized by the Dental Lifeline Network, DDS delivers education and dental care for economically disadvantaged individuals. The program also works with seniors and those with incapacitating medical conditions.

Missions of Mercy: Missions of Mercy is a local program providing basic services such as cleanings, extractions, fillings, and some lab work.

Give Kids A Smile (GKAS): Held on the first Friday of February, ADA Give Kids A Smile provides no-cost dental care for children from low-income communities. Local areas often expand the GKAS program to include multiple days.
