RICHMOND, VA, October 15, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Smile 32 Dental Center knows just how important it is to provide low-cost or free dental care to those in need. They are proud to offer affordable yet excellent dental care to people in the Richmond, Virginia area. The team believes that this kind of service is essential to adults and children alike. For this reason, they are lending their support to a new article
that discusses how a non-profit dental clinic in Arkansas recently received a $15,000 grant.
The clinic is called the Future Smiles Dental Clinic, and it received the grant from the Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation. The check was presented recently during one of the children's dental clinics, which take place at a local elementary school. The clinic is committed to offering comprehensive dental care to kids who come from low to moderate-income households. The clinic is staffed by dental professionals who come from Arkansas Children's Hospital, as well as dental hygiene students studying at the University of Arkansas at Medical Sciences.
The daily clinic treats school-age children every month of the year, except for July. Since the clinic began, thousands of school children have had the ability to receive necessary dental care, which they might not otherwise have gotten. The efforts of the clinic are essential, especially as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that roughly 70 percent of kids experience some level of decay in their permanent teeth.
"These kinds of programs are an absolute necessity. A child's oral hygiene has a major impact on the health of their teeth and gums as they age. All children need access to good dental care, so the people staffing this clinic are providing a much-needed service for kids in this area. We can only hope that more programs like this continue to pop up around the country, thus helping all people get the care they need to stay happy and healthy as the children who rely on the clinic grow," notes a representative from Smile 32 Dental Center.
"Our hope is that our contribution will be able to help many in need. We are excited to partner with UALR on this wonderful project, and look forward to hearing some of the success stories we expect to come out of it," states Kelly Caldwell, manager of communications and foundation for Delta Dental.
"These kinds of programs provide a much-needed service, and we hope that the children who have access to this clinic are able to take advantage of it. Healthy teeth and gums are essential for proper growth and development," explain the team at Smile 32 Dental Center.
Smile 32 Dental Center provides excellent doctor care for patients in the Richmond, Virginia area. The services offered at the facility are high quality yet very affordable, and the professionals accept a wide range of payments. Their services make it easier than ever for all people to get the kind of dental care they need to stay healthy in the future. The practice was created by Dr. Alirio Millan.
