Weather conditions in Bemidji forced us to reschedule our patient's who had appointments to receive preventive dental care in Thief River Falls on Tuesday, January 29th. We were able to travel north on Wednesday, January 30th, and see our patients who had scheduled appointments for that day. It's exciting to begin 2013 with such great interest in our program in this area of Minnesota! We hope to travel to Thief River Falls many more times within the year!
Northern Dental was happy to be able to provide preventive dental care to eighteen children who attend the Clearbrook-Gonvick School in January 2013. It was wonderful to be able to work with the staff at this site, everyone was so supportive of our mission and willing to help us in an way that they were able. We hope to travel back to your school in the future to reach more children through our Community Based Oral Health Program!
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.
