Jeffrey B. Dalin, D.D.S, recipient of ADA’s 2022 Humanitarian Award

St. Louis — More than 7 million underserved children have received free oral health services through the national Give Kids A Smile program.

That’s what gives Jeffrey B. Dalin, D.D.S., a smile.

“Creating beautiful smiles on my patients and creating beautiful smiles on Give Kids A Smile children are perfect ways to make me smile,” he said.

For co-creating and continually guiding the ADA’s signature access to care program Give Kids A Smile for 20 years, Dr. Dalin was named the 2022 recipient of the Association’s Humanitarian Award, one of the highest honors the ADA bestows on members, in recognition of his efforts co-founding the St. Louis Give Kids A Smile program and continually guiding the national ADA Give Kids A Smile program for 20 years.

“It is my distinct pleasure, on behalf of the Board of Trustees, to recognize our friend and colleague Dr. Jeffrey Dalin for his stewardship over the past two decades,” said Dr. Cesar R. Sabates, ADA president.
