On Friday, February 3, 2017, the N.J. Dental Association will hold its annual “Give Kids A Smile!” event.  This is a free program  to help children who cannot otherwise afford to see a dentist.  It is held one day a year and ensures access to quality dental care for all children ages 12 and under.  

             Services rendered include cleanings, screenings, x-rays, fillings, extractions, and fluoride treatments. Information on this program is available online at www.njda.org/gkasParents/guardians must call the selected location and make an appointment immediately, as appointments fill up extremely fast.  All children must have a parental consent/medical history form filled out and signed at the time of treatment.  Treatment will not be delivered without a signed consent form.  It is the parent’s responsibility to transport the child to the selected location.  Participating Ocean County dentists are listed below:
