Our portable dental unit was at the Kelliher Health Service & Clinic on May 7th and 10th and was available to provide services to children. We will be appearing the first Monday and Thursday of each month through August 2012 at the Kelliher Clinic and we encourage those who live in the area to take advantage of our services this summer! Please contact the Project Coordinator at (218) 556-3666 to schedule an appointment!
On Tuesday, May 8th, Northern Dental Access Center made it to Lincoln Elementary School and was able to meet many children to teach them about their oral health! Thank you, teachers, for making Oral Health Education a part of your week! We appreciate your support! See you soon, Lincoln students! We will be in the school beginning next Tuesday to provide preventative services!
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.
