We were able to move into the nurse's office in this lovely school and create a dental clinic for the children at Walker Hackensack Akeley school! A big thank you to nurse Sandy for promoting our program in your school and allowing us to be present at all of the conferences and parent nights! Thank you, children and teachers, for being so wonderful while we were in your school! We will see you soon!
Solway Elementary opened their conference room to us for two days as we transformed it into a portable dental clinic! We were able to see a few children for preventative services and were pleased with the time spent in this elementary school. Thank you students and staff for being flexible while we were on site!
We made appearances once again in the Beltrami WIC Clinic during the first and third week of the month. We have been so pleased with the positive reception we have received while at the clinic and look forward to providing access in a convenient location for parents to bring their children to get a dental screening and cleaning.
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.
