We were so happy for the interest that was expressed this month while we traveled to Crookston, MN to provide services at the WIC Clinic site. We had full schedules both of the days we were in town and hope to be able to see many more who are in need of preventive dental care when we return in August.
We were able to provide Oral Health Education for Bemidji Middle School's summer prorams. The children were very receptive to the information regarding how to brush their teeth, floss between their teeth, visiting the dentist, fluoride, sealants and learning about different foods and sodas! What great listeners!
Our time spent in Thief River Falls has been well received and our Community Based Oral Health Program has been welcomed with open arms by the clinic staff! We have seen quite a few patients and are hopeful that many more will continue to access our services when we return to the site in August!
We finally made it up to the Blackduck WIC Clinic to provide preventative services! We were able to see two children and hope to reach more children and adults when we are present at the clinic in the future. We will be in Blackduck the second Monday of every month, so be sure to contact our Project Coordinator at (218)-556-3666 to set up an appointment during the days we are in town.
