Public Resources

We know that part of a dentist’s involvement in the community means offering patients the resources and information they need to keep their smiles bright and their mouths healthy. But dentists also play a part in keeping a community’s professional standards high and in helping underserved populations get the care they need.

Brush! Program at McMillen Health Center

Brush! IKDDS ProgramBrush! was designed to reduce the amount of serious dental decay in children. Dental decay is the most common childhood disease, five times more common than asthma. Children miss 51 million hours of school each year due to dental related problems.

The goal of the Brush! program:
Low-income children and their parents establish a habit of daily dental hygiene and regular dental visits that allow children to enter Kindergarten ready to learn.  Children will not suffer from the adverse effects of  dental decay which may cause children to be in pain, and therefore inattentive in class, or to miss school because they are sick from repeated infections.
