  • GKAS 2022 at the Bayview Ave. School Video Our 2022 GKAS event was held at the Bayview Ave. School of Arts & Science in Freeport, NY. This was our first "in-school" event in the 19 year history of our program as well as the first time we did a combined indoor and outdoor event. The 550 students there received free dental exams, fluoride treatments, sealants, oral hygiene instructions and nutrition education by our 100 volunteers. The Lion’s Club of Long Beach also provided free eye exams. We thank our wonderful Volunteers as well as Dr. Mary Garguilo, Principal of the Bayview Ave. School, Mr. Stanley Bergman, CEO of Henry Schein, Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine, Northwell Health, the New York State Dental Foundation, Sports Depot, The Long Beach Lion's Club, Fidelis Care, Liberty Dental, and Vivo Entertainment for their help in making this day possible as well as Michael Krien of Patkin Photography for putting together this wonderful video.
