Dental Clinic

 

Our dental clinic currently has two dentists, two full-time dental hygienists, one PRN dental hygienist and six dental assistants providing general primary care dentistry and hygiene.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Capital Improvement Program and the Kansas Dental Hub II program have provided Salina Health Education Foundation (SHEF) the opportunity to expand and improve services while promoting whole person care.

Renovations have allowed us to increase the number of treatment rooms in the dental clinic from 6 to 10 to accommodate additional dental patients.

Our ECP outreach program began in January 2009. This program provides dental hygiene, screenings and oral health education in surrounding schools, Head Start programs, county health departments, adult day care facilities and long term care centers within a 12 county service area. For the 2010-2011 school year alone, we have screened over 12,000 students in the surrounding communities. Our portable equipment was purchased through private dental grant funding. Supplies needed for screenings, such as masks, gloves and mirrors are provided at no cost by KDHE. Toothbrushes are also provided through a KDHE grant. Oral Health is an important component of overall health and school screenings are mandated through K.S.A. Statute 72-5201.
