American Dental Association Sponsors “Give Kids a Smile” Program

Since 2007, Dr. Nicholas Rauber has worked in partnership with Dr. Daniel O. Bankhead at the Aesthetic Dentistry Group in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Away from his practice, Dr. Nicholas Rauber spends considerable time volunteering and supporting various charitable groups. He has volunteered with the Give Kids a Smile program, which is part of the American Dental Association (ADA).

Begun in 2003, the Give Kids a Smile program helps provide dental services to children in underserved communities. Originally begun as a one-day event in February, the program currently offers local and national events throughout the year in order to reach more individuals. According to the ADA, more than 1,500 events have taken place so far this year, with more than 9,000 dentists participating. In addition, almost 29,000 volunteers have helped the nearly 350,000 children who have benefited from the program. Since its inception, the program has enabled more than five million children to receive cleanings, dental screenings, X-rays, and sealants.
