BIG SMILES COORDINATES IN-SCHOOL Dental SERVICES for AT-RISK CHILDREN, BRINGING THE CARE TO THE NEED.
Most of the millions of low-income children in the United States do not receive proper dental care and many experience acute dental pain. Low-income children are up to 5 times more likely to have untreated tooth decay, frequently causing general health problems, learning difficulties, discomfort, eating problems, and esteem issues. Mobile dentists working in school-based dental programs have been shown to be an effective tool at addressing these problems.
RHA works with dental providers to facilitate the delivery of dental care for these children via portable dental clinics that travel to schools, group homes, residential treatment centers, etc. In this school-based dental program, the latest technology is used to bring top-quality care to patients in a compassionate manner that is minimal work for a school to implement.
Please note, RHA is not a provider organization but instead provides administrative services for the program under the direction of a licensed dentist. More information on our children's program can be found at the Big Smiles website.
Please contact us to learn more about how the school-based dental program can be brought to your school.
