smile drive

Some kids in America don't own a toothbrush.

Now more than ever, kids need to practice good dental hygiene to prevent the spread of germs and protect their smiles from dental disease. How can they when they don't have the "magic wand" that eradicates tooth decay–a toothbrush of their own?

Our Smile Drive campaign mobilizes volunteers across the U.S. to collect toothbrushes and other dental hygiene products for low-income families in their own communities. (See what our awesome volunteers accomplished last year.)

Join our Smile Drive as an individual or a group. Churches, schools, service clubs, businesses, dental offices, fraternities and sororities—anyone can help kids keep their smiles healthy! Sign up below.

Since 2014, our Smile Drive volunteers have helped us distribute

2,266,757

oral care products to families in need!

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are asking all Smile Drive volunteers to practice safe social distancing by using drop-off boxes, holding a Smile Drive-thru, or help us provide toothbrushes to kids in need across the country by holding a Virtual Smile Drive online.

A Smile Drive is a simple way to give back to and educate your community about the oral health crisis in America. Collect toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, rinse and mouth guards by following these easy steps:

  1. Register to host a Smile Drive (we'll send you everything you need!)
  2. Collect, count and report your donations by June 30, 2022
  3. Deliver your donations to organizations serving families in need. (Need some ideas? Click here for examples.)
