On Feb. 3, 2012, most of Colorado was met with a February snowstorm, which left more than a few snowy footprints on Give Kids a Smile Day, a national access-to-care day for underserved children. Due to the snow, some GKAS events were cancelled, others were rescheduled and some forged on as planned. There were great success stories from GKAS this year despite the multiple inches of snow. Thank you to the hundreds of volunteers for this year’s GKAS program. Your volunteer time and support of this annual program is greatly appreciated.
As mentioned earlier, several GKAS programs were forced to reschedule to a later date. As you complete your GKAS program, please remember to fill-out and submit your Superbills for patient treated and School Presentation Tracking Forms for each school visited. This is the only method the CDA has for recording the volunteer contributions for the program. These numbers are shared with legislators and the media.
If you treated patients, please fill out a GKAS Superbill for each patient you saw and fax/mail them to the CDA. Click here to download a GKAS Superbill.
If you provided educational presentations, please fill out and submit the School Presentation Tracking Form. These forms allow us to see where education is being provided within Colorado. Click here to download a School Presentation Tracking Form.
Year after year, the CDA organizes GKAS, but it’s thanks to you that the program is such a success. We appreciate your time and dedication to National Children’s Dental Health Month. Thank you for giving kids a smile!
