The American Dental Association (ADA) Foundation is asking volunteers and supporters from Give Kids A Smile (GKAS) to help it get the word out about the program's using Thunderclap, a social media tool.

Thunderclap is used to link social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr, so the ADA Foundation can post messages about GKAS across all platforms at once. Using this safe social media tool, supporters of the program will be able to post reminders to their friends and followers to volunteer for GKAS and sign up with the ADA Foundation for their program.

The message posted on Oct. 27 was "Volunteer for Give Kids A Smile. Sign up your program to help kids in need get the healthy smile they deserve. #GKAS."

Those interested can register for the GKAS program at ADAFoundation.org. The deadline to register is Nov. 7. Those who sign up by Nov. 7 will receive a dental product kit donated by Henry Schein. The kit includes gloves, patient bibs, gauze pads, prophy angels, prophy paste, fluoride varnish and other miscellaneous products.

New to the kits this year will be sealant provided by 3M. Henry Schein also donates kits for oral health educational purposes through the GKAS program.
