The month of February is indeed dedicated to kids’ dental health nationwide.
This is why, hundreds of organizations, individual dental offices and sponsors join their hands in order to offer free dental treatment to children who really need them.
The Centennial Area Health Education Center formed partnership with the Northeast Colorado Health Department in order to provide free dental services for children throughout local schools.
The initiative is called the Eastern Plains Oral Health and together with many other contributing businesses and agencies, their aim is to provide free dental care for uninsured/underinsured kids between 3 and 8 years old.
Such events have been hosted successfully in the past, and around 900 children already received fluoride treatments and dental screenings in the counties of Sedgwick and Phillips.
The next free dental treatment day is scheduled for February 28. Pre-K students and those studying at the Holyoke Elementary School are welcome to join the event.
In order to receive these free dental services, children have to present a permission slip, which is signed by the parent/legal guardian of the child. Among the free services provided there will be tooth varnishes, sealants, or fluoride treatments.
Moreover, children will also receive educational information on how to take care properly of their teeth. All the treatments will be provided during regular school hours, so parents do not have to worry about any extra transportation.
