Give Kids a Smile Day
Give Kids a Smile Day is an annual event spotlighting National Children's Dental Health Month. The event focuses on providing oral health education, as well as preventative and restorative care to children. San José Clinic collaborates with the Greater Houston Dental Society and the University of Texas - School of Dentistry to provide oral exams and digital x-rays for children in advance of further treatment at the School of Dentistry.
Back to School Party
The annual San José Clinic Back to School event provides patient families with children entering grades pre-k – 6th grade with a backpack, grade appropriate school supplies and gift cards to purchase school uniforms. Generous donations from individuals, corporations and community groups support this program.
Through this program, San José Clinic works with the Greater Houston Hygienists' Society to provide sealants to children ages five to 18 years. Each year, Sealant Day provides over 100 uninsured children from low-income families with free dental treatment, including a visual examination, hygiene instruction, and oral health supplies.
This oldest patient program began more than 94 years ago in the Clinic's early years and is now a Christmas tradition for Clinic patients and staff. Families who attend the event enjoy games and party treats before receiving gift cards from Santa Claus and his volunteer elves. They experience a fun and special day at the Clinic and leave with a keepsake family picture with Santa and hope for a memorable Christmas. The Clinic receives support from many individuals, companies and community groups that sponsor gift drives and volunteer on the day of the party.
