Dental school launches program for research and the treatment of families with no dental insurance
Updated: 7/22/2010 9:00:05 PM

Dental school launches program for research and the treatment of families with no dental insurance In an effort to determine the hereditary effects of dental problems, the School of Dental Medicine at Case Western Reserve University has launched the Family First program. The initiative will observe how oral hygiene problems, such as cavities, gum disease and mouth cancer may be passed down through several generations.

Beginning in August, a group of the school's dental students will be partnered with a local dentist and will provide free dental care services for one of nine volunteering families. Participating families received a health and dental screening, and licensed specialists determine a treatment plan for each family.

Launching this program will give students a hands-on opportunity to learn about how genetics affect an individual who develops a certain dental complication. This opportunity will also teach students about the importance of free dental care for people with little or no dental insurance.

While similar programs can prove beneficial to families without dental care benefits, signing up for a discount dental plan can also provide patients with the same treatments. In fact, an affordable plan will allow people to see dentists on a regular basis, and provide them with a wider variety of treatment options.
