Ohio Hi-Point Career Center recently had a mobile dentist office on campus. For a second year in a row, students received dental care through an outreach idea called the Smiles Program.
The Smile Program is an on-site, school based, dental provider, offerings cleanings and dental work at schools. Students who were interested in the mobile dentists filled out an application at the beginning of the year to receive the dental care needed in a comfortable and effective way.
“No students are turned away from the program,” offered the school’s nurse, Amy McCarthy, RN, BSN, “the mobile dentists are a way for students who may have not had access to dental care before, to receive a cleaning and an evaluation
A healthy smile is healthy individual and in turn that helps our students’ employability.”
The mobile dentists will return to campus in April 16, 2013. Any student is eligible can complete an application by contacting Amy McCarthy. For more information on the mobile dentists visit www.mobiledentists.com or call Amy McCarthy at 937.599.3010.
