Many children, for different reasons, do not receive routine dental care. There are various reasons for this – parents cannot take off from work to take them to the dentist, parents don’t want their kids to miss school, or lack of transportation.
The fact is, these children, if 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, a mobile dental unit, equipped with a complete dental office.
The mobile dental office visits community schools on a regular basis and provides crucial oral care, including preventive and restorative services when necessary.
Hundreds of children have already benefitted from this innovative service, children won’t miss much school time and parents don’t miss work.
