We traveled to Kelliher to provide preventative services to children in the school. The team was here from October 24th through the 26th. We were able to see 21 students to clean their teeth and teach them about good brushing habits. We anticipate coming back to the school this year to provide Oral Health Education to all of the students and their teachers. The team looks forward to seeing all of the kids in the Kelliher School soon!
Our first stop this fall was to the Laporte school! We were on site at the school from October 3rd-7th and enjoyed working with the children to educate them about oral health and the importance of brushing and visiting the dentist. All of the staff at Laporte were very welcoming and accommodating to make this experience spectacular!
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.
