Thomas C. Flavin, DDS

I am a father, grandfather, husband, coach servant, and passionate dental professional dedicated to providing comprehensive care and education to the Greater St. Louis community’s under-resourced children. I am inspired every day by these precious children, the generosity of our volunteers, and the dedication of our board members. I am proud to be a founding member of GKAS and I am blessed to have worked with so many wonderful, caring people.

Jeffrey B. Dalin, DDS

Secretary / Treasurer

Dr. Dalin is a general dentist in Creve Coeur. He started working with his father after graduating from Indiana University School of Dentistry in 1980 and now is practicing with his son and nephew. Jeff has been involved with St. Louis Give Kids A Smile since its inception back in 2001. He has also served on the advisory board of the American Dental Association Give Kids A Smile Program since they adopted GKAS as their national children’s dental access program back in 2002. One day, he hopes to see all children have access to dental care on a routine basis. Their dental health will be much better…they will be able to pay attention in school…they will have better self-esteem…they will eat and sleep better…they will no longer have to suffer with dental pain.
