...and all of them work right here 2-3 days a week!
For the month of Nov, Community Dental was able to see 36 children. The important thing to note is not the # of children seen, but the amount of cavities they took care of. They spent a long time on many children who had anywhere from 8-13 cavites!, as young as 5 years old.
We were able to combat 206 cavities!!!
170 were fillings
31 were extractions
5 were crowns + baby root canals
On the preventive side, we were able to seal 67 healthy molars - to help prevent cavities!
For dental history, 20 of the children did not have any dental history
8 children went to a dentist greater then a year ago (some going back four years ago).
8 who saw a dentist less then one year ago...but many were not taken back to finish dental treatment because there were still cavities left untreated.
As we consider nutrition and wellness as a function of educating the whole child - it is important to note what an integral role literacy, small learning communities, personal health and partnerships play in establishing life long practices that will change their lives forever!
THANK YOU COMMUNITY DENTAL!
