Late last month, a non-profit group of dental centers in Alabama received the Affiliate of the Year Award from the National Children's Oral Health Foundation (NCOHF) for its dedication to providing dental care to thousands of underprivileged children in need.
Sarrell Dental, which treats all children under the age of 20 who are enrolled in Medicaid, was chosen from the NCOHF's affiliate network of dental centers because of its efforts to provide dental services and oral health awareness to the growing number of Alabama children without insurance.
In 2009 alone, Sarrell Dental served more than 57,000 patients and performed almost 27,000 dental screenings and education lessons at schools and daycare centers throughout Alabama.
Officials with the center report that nearly six out of every 10 children in Alabama do not have dental insurance and are in dire need of care.
Meanwhile, Sarrell Dental's Athens location has announced that it will be extending its hours and hiring additional dentists to compensate for the increasing number of children in the state who are suffering from dental health problems.
