We were very excited to be able to travel to the Kelliher school and see more children with our portable dental unit! Thank you for letting us come back into your school for the second time in the 2011-2012 school year. We look forward to seeing you all next fall, so be sure to watch for our forms coming out at the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year!
After visiting Blackduck school in December to provide Oral Health Education to the K-6th grade students, we came back on January 10th, 2012 to begin seeing patients for preventative services! We have been so excited that all of the students are happy to come and get their teeth cleaned by either Katie or Jen! Thank you to nurse Becky for letting us share her room for the few weeks we were in the school providing cleanings for many, many children! We will be back next year and would love to visit you all again to see how well you have taken care of your teeth!
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.
