Schools receive multi-million dollar grants to provide dental care
Updated: 10/12/2010 5:00:12 PM

Schools receive multi-million dollar grants to provide dental care Nearly 32 percent of children who are aged 6 to 19 and come from low-income families have untreated cavities, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Now, there are schools which are receiving funds in order to help these under-served kids and adults.

For example, faculty members at the University of Florida (UF) were recently awarded five grants from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, according to the school's Website. The money, which totals almost $7 million, will go toward treating low-income families.

Students at the UF will gain hands-on and advanced training so that they can treat under-served patients. According to the news source, faculty in the dental program will use the funds to buy new equipment.

The money will also be used to implement new programs at the school. The goal is to increase the number of dentists who work in pediatrics so that more children can receive care, the news provider reports.

Individuals who lack coverage can find low-cost treatment for themselves and their kids through discount dental plans.
