Orthodontic Care Program:
Our Orthodontic Care Program puts braces on the teeth of children suffering from severe orthodontic problems. Following our Family Guidelines and Policies, these children are growing up in a poor or working poor family situation, and have been turned down by Medicare or other state funded programs, qualifying them for care.
Currently this year…
4 children had their braces removed and are starting a new stage in life,
8 children are beginning new orthodontic treatment,
and 54 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.
This past school year we visited…
4 counties (Summit, Portage, Stark, Medina),
263 classrooms, in 76 schools (public, parochial, private),
and taught 6,180 students how to brush their teeth.
