WDA.org is home to countless resources for dentists throughout the state, including for the Give Kids A Smile® program. Since its launch in 2003, this program has provided more than $9 million in care to over 70,500 Wisconsin youngsters.
Look to WDA.org for help in running the GKAS® program in your community: https://www.wda.org/dental-professionals/gkas
The website has recently been updated with new materials including a waiver form with new image waiver language, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Notice of Privacy Practices forms (in English and Spanish) and HIPAA Acknowledgement Forms (in English and Spanish).
Other resources available include: Why and how to establish a partnership with a local organization (as well as a list of possible organizations); why and how to invite elected officials; how to obtain free pediatric dental records for your use and more.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions on GKAS® or the resources we provide. The Wisconsin Dental Association is here to help you in whatever way we can. Feel free to contact me with questions at 414-755-4110 or [email protected].
And, remember, we would like to know when and where your dental practice or local component society has a GKAS® event scheduled. Please share details and photos for a wrap-up story in a future WDA Journal!
