Our Programs

Orthodontic Care Program:

Our Orthodontic Care Program puts braces on the teeth of children suffering from severe orthodontic problems, growing up in a poor or working poor family situation, and have been turned down by Medicaid.

They can be socially stigmatized, bullied, and discriminated against all resulting in a lack of confidence and self esteem.

So far this year…

12 children had their braces removed and are starting a new stage in life,
27 children are beginning new orthodontic treatment,
and 58 children are currently in treatment.

Dr. Milton Rubin Oral Health Education Program:

Our Oral Health Education Program introduces third grade students to an impactful oral health presentation focused on influencing and improving oral health habits in young children. Every class is taught by a Registered Dental Hygienist, and each student receives a personal tooth brush, tooth paste, dental floss and disclosing tablets, fun work sheets, and a brushing calendar to track their progress. We’re helping children show up for school everyday healthy, pain-free, and ready to learn.

During the past school year (2017-2018) we visited…
4 counties (Summit, Portage, Stark, Medina),
272 classrooms, in 76 schools (public, parochial, private),
and taught 6,116 students how to brush their teeth.

So far this school year (2018-2019) we visited…
