Many children, for different reasons, do not receive routine dental care. Perhaps parents cannot take off from work to take them to the dentist, parents don’t want their kids to miss school, or maybe there is a lack of transportation.
The fact is, children deprived of proper oral hygiene and care are at a much higher risk of developing serious diseases and health issues which can be painful and otherwise detrimental to their overall health.
At EMC we care about our community and we care about your children. It is for that reason that EMC launched its School Based Dental Center, two mobile dental units, each equipped with a complete dental office.
The mobile dental units visit community schools, providing the head start dental screenings, as well as preventive and restorative care.
Hundreds of children have already benefitted from this innovative service – children won’t miss valuable school time and parents won’t miss work.
