PDS was excited to once again team up with the American Dental Association (R) for "Give Kids a Smile," held annually on the first Friday of February. The affiliated offices worked with over 50 non-profit organizations, including school districts, local churches, and shelters to provide free dentistry to needy children with poor or neglected oral health in California and Arizona. Some of the participating organizations included Olive Crest/Oak Grove (R), Families Forward (C), and the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services (C). Major vendor partners; Proctor and Gamble (TM), Henry Schein (R), and Smart Practice (R), joined PDS by donating materials such as hygiene essentials, dental supplies, educational pamphlets, and fun stickers for all participants.

This marks the third year in a row that Pacific Dental Services has participated in the annual Give Kids a Smile event. Their participation continues to be strong and they've now served nearly 1000 children total. A significant part of PDS is their Corporate Social Responsibility focusing on outreach participation, including an annual trip to Mexico during which they provide free dentistry.

Matt Hall, Director of Marketing said, "This is one of the most special days of the year for our company. To see how our services better the lives of these children and their families is such a blessing." Hall also added, "The best part of the day is after each child is taken care of and our teams explain the completed treatment to the families. Almost without fail, our staff and the families break into tears of joy!" Dr. Inaksh Johal, a PDS affiliated dentist who participated in the event, was overjoyed by participating in the event and thankful to be affiliated with a company that places importance on philanthropy. Dr. Johal stated, "It was a blessing from God to be able to take care of these children. I would be willing to participate in 'Give Kids a Smile' again and again!"
