Red Lake County Central Schools welcomed our program into their district this fall. We were able to see 16 children for preventive dental care at the school this fall and hope to return next fall to reach many more that are in need of care and qualify for our services! Unfortunately, do to the low response from parents who have children that attend the RLCC High School, we were unable to make a trip there this fall. Perhaps next year!
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.
