Northern Dental Access Center partnered with Beltrami County Family Health to display information at the Bemidji Library regarding National Children's Dental Health Month! Be sure to stop by the display when you are in town to learn more about how you can keep your child's dental health at its best!
February 21st marked our first day traveling to the Polk County Public Health and WIC clinic during 2013! We had a full day of patients scheduled and were happy to be able to see all of them for preventive dental care. We will be back to this Crookston, MN site in April. Please contact our Project Coordinator at 218-556-3666 if you have questions regarding the program or would like to set up an appointment!
Northern Dental's Community Based Oral Health Program Coordinator and the clinic's new Health Coordinator traveled together to Mahnomen, MN to provide Oral Health Education to the CNA's and LPN's on staff at the Mahnomen Health Center. We were happy to be able to reach some of the residents with our presentation, as well!
Our first time traveling to the Grygla School was a chilly one! With temperatures in the area dipping to -30 degrees Farenheit, we were happy to be greeted so warmly by the staff and students at this school. We were able to provide preventive dental services to 6 children while we were on site and hope to reach many more when we travel back to this school in the future!
Northern Dental Access Center has received a grant from Healthier Minnesota Community Clinic Fund which consists of a portable dental unit. A team which consists of a Dental Hygienist and a Dental Assistant will be able to perform preventative services such as cleanings, sealants, fluoride treatments, oral health instruction, and screening for decay and other oral health problems. Our goals include preventative services and proper referrals for the elimination of pain and disease for this under served population, as well as to provide education and increasing awareness of oral health and it's impact on overall wellness throughout our community.
