Mobile Dental Services Van
CHILDREN MISS MORE DAYS OF SCHOOL BECAUSE OF DENTAL PROBLEMS THAN FOR ANY OTHER REASON
We need your support to get the van purchased, outfitted and on the road!
By clicking DONATE NOW, you will be directed to donate online through charity.gofundme.com, a secure and encrypted website.
Donations added online may not reflect in immediate increase in numbers.
Children need to be able to READ by the 3rd grade because they read to LEARN starting in the 4th grade.
Children cannot learn if they are not in school and they cannot concentrate if they are suffering from dental pain and discomfort.
Currently, mobile dental screenings are done in the schools - often in awkward places, like sitting on the floor, in the gym, on the stage or in storage areas.
We need the proper equipment and transportation to meet our goal of bringing dental care to the children of our communities.
How Does The BVCC Help?
Our goal is to purchase and outfit the van for full preventative dental services – where all equipment is stored internally in a compact and sanitary setting.
In addition to services in the schools, our goals are to offer outreach and oral health education at service organizations, libraries, businesses, and at community events throughout northern Manistee and southern Benzie Counties.
The Betsie Valley Community Center and the mobile dental van will help in more ways than one.
Dental Services will include:
Dental Cleanings & Screenings
Silver Diamine Fluoride
