Boys & Girls Club Gets Its Smile On!
Just Kids Dental (JKD) brought its great Toothbrush Giveaway to the Boys & Girls Club of the Northland (Dave Goldberg Branch) Friday, July 26, 2013.
After JKD staff present proper brushing and flossing techniques, the students will receive a toothbrush kit, helping JKD continue its campaign to distribute 10,000 oral health kits this year!
Just Kids Dental has conducted preventative dental care clinics for income-eligible students in the Northland communities since 2006. The locally administered nonprofit launched its oral health education program in school districts earlier this year.
“Pediatric dental disease is an epidemic in this country,” says Stacey Anderson, JKD Founder/Executive Director. “A child can’t focus and learn if they’re in pain.”
Teams of Dental Assistants and Registered Dental Hygienists see kids every day who desperately need care, but their family lacks the ability to access care due to financial and transportation barriers.
JKD welcomes community support of its mission at its website: www.justkidsdentalinc.org
Just Kids Dental is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides oral health screenings, dental cleanings, fluoride varnish applications, sealants, oral health and nutritional education, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and floss to underserved children across the region. It eliminates access barriers to care by delivering these services directly to 30 schools in Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin.
