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!
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.
