Giving Back

We take pride in our local communities and strives to help each of them grow and prosper. Since 2002, Kool Smiles Kids Club partners have invested more than $100 million into the communities we serve with outreach, dental health education, and charitable giving programs.

Community Outreach

Operation Troop Treats

Our annual Halloween candy exchange, Operation Troop Treats, encourages healthy habits at home while supporting American troops serving abroad. Since we started the Operation Troop Treats program in 2012, Communities have donated more than 16 tons of candy and sent more than 1,000 care packages to U.S. troops serving overseas. Learn more about Operation Troop Treats.

Sharing Smiles Day

Children smiling
Sharing Smiles Day is a national day of free dental care exclusively for children, hosted by Kool Smiles partner dentists and their volunteers. Since 2015, more than 2100 children without dental insurance received much needed dental care at no cost during Sharing Smiles Day. Learn more about Sharing Smiles Day.

Dental Health Education

Success at the dentist’s office, and at home, begins with education. We want to help parents teach their kids healthy habits that will last a lifetime – and be partners in their children’s success.

Dental Health Lesson Plans


Teachers at school and at home (parents), are some of our most valued allies in our fight against childhood tooth decay. As part of our effort to bring dental health education out of the dentist’s chair and into the classroom, we are proud to provide free dental health lesson plans for preschool and K-5 aged children across the country. Our lesson plans include age-appropriate dental curricula to help create a fun and interactive classroom environment. Download our Dental Lesson Plans here!
