CareCredit donates $100K to Give Kids A Smile

For the seventh consecutive year, CareCredit has given a $100,000 grant to the ADA Foundation Give Kids A Smile (GKAS) Fund, with half of the amount designated to support the Ad Council's 2min2X oral care campaign.

That funding will support four related events:

  • One dental school screening for underserved children
  • Two elementary school education events for underserved children (CA and MO)
  • Missions of Mercy/Give Kids A Smile children's oral health education and treatment event at the 2013 ADA Annual Session

Each event will incorporate and support the Ad Council's 2min2x oral care campaign, educating and encouraging children to spend two minutes brushing their teeth, twice a day, and providing free oral care education and toothbrush kits.

The first oral education event was held March 21 at Troth Elementary School in Jurupa Valley, CA, with nearly 950 students in attendance. Many of the children commented that this was the first time they had their own toothbrush to use at home.

Another event, Missions of Mercy/Give Kids A Smile, will be held in conjunction with the ADA Annual Session in New Orleans on November 3, 2013, and will receive half of the designated $50,000.
