August was a busy month at the Thief River Falls WIC Clinic! With more advertising this month, we were able to schedule full days at the clinic on Tuesday the 14th and Wednesday the 15th! We will begin a new schedule this month and begin a rotating schedule with the WIC clinics we travel to regularly. Our Community Based Program will be back to Thief River Falls in October, so be sure to call to schedule your appointment soon!
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.
