Travelling dental professionals providing young children with free care
Updated: 11/17/2010 4:59:57 PM

Travelling dental professionals providing young children with free care Organizations in some areas are making an effort to travel across their respective state in order to provide hundreds of elementary school students with dental care.

For example, the Maine Dental Health Outreach (MDHO), a nonprofit organization in Maine, have made their way across the state for the last six years to offer their dental services to young students, according to WMTW-TV.

MDHO uses a van that has been converted into a travelling clinic to provide oral exams for children five days each week. The goal of the program is to deliver care at 34 different schools in the central part of the state because dental care is very limited in that area, the news source reports.

Susanne LaVallee, one of the dentists involved with MDHO, told the news source that grants and donations are heavily relied on to keep the clinic up and running. She added that the children she services for a second time have roughly 85 percent less cavities compared to their first visit.

Although tooth decay can be prevented with regular check-ups, this is the most common chronic disease of children who are between 6 and 11 years old. Fortunately, there are affordable ways in which parents can find dental care for their kids.
