Early March allowed us to set up a booth at Central Elementary in Bemidji during conferences. This was a nice way to meet many parents and let them know about this wonderful program that would be coming into their child's school. The next week, we set up our portable unit in a variety of rooms to be able to see children for preventative services. We were able to get to know the school very well as we were in a different room almost every day! Thank you for the staff for being so flexible with your limited space and time, we appreciate it!
We were back in the Beltrami WIC clinic in March, and will be coming in every other week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays to see children and adults that would like to take advantage of this wonderful program.
The Bagley school welcomed us into their building from February 27th through March 1st. We were able to see many children and we were happy to teach them about brushing and flossing regularly. We were happy to be able to spend time in your school and hope to be back next year to see several more kids!
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.
