Catching Up with the Dental Team!
It’s been a minute since we’ve taken the time to catch up with our dental team! Program coordinator, Vicky, caught us up on all the latest happenings, and here is what she had to say!
- The Dental Van is excited to announce that they are obtaining a new pediatric sensor for their X-ray machine! It is a smaller sensor that is more conducive to pediatric dentist practices. The sensor will be used on patients ages 3-11 and it will allow the team to take more thorough X-rays of the mouth. The dental team is excited about this new piece of equipment as they have been wanting one for some time now.
- The van will be at District 167 from April 13th to April 16th and District 104 on April 19th and 20th. These dates are make-ups as the weather in February hindered the Dental Van visit. Mobile Care is excited to see kids back at school in person, as it allows us to see more patients!
- Six-month follow-up appointments are on their way. At the end of April, the dental team will be at Ridgeland and in May, the team will head to Midlothian
- As far as regions, the dental team has been working closely with Ada S McKinley sites. They have visited about 12 sites of theirs. Many are on the south side in neighborhoods where access to proper dental care is scarce.
Thank you, Vicky, for letting us know about these exciting updates! We are so proud of our dental team and are so appreciative of all their hard work.
