In an effort to assist individuals in western Nevada who live in underserved counties, a team of dental specialists have opened a dental care facility. This center will benefit individuals who lack dental insurance and those who have lost their jobs due to economic hardships, and only have minimal dental coverage for themselves and their families.
The team also established this clinic to benefit patients who are 21 years and younger, according to The Union. Dentists will provide preventative treatments, and teach young patients about how to properly practice dental care at home, including brushing their teeth, using floss and rinsing with fluoride.
By specializing in pediatric dental care, the facility is helping reduce the number of children who suffer from many dental problems, such as tooth decay. By the third grade, approximately 50 of children in the U.S. will develop tooth decay, according to the New York Presbyterian Hospital.
Justin Pfaffinger, a Nevada-based general dentist, told the news source that "the reason why we wanted to get something going is because there are a tremendous number of families, especially children, who do not see the dentist at all in Nevada County."
