Potter County Children’s Dental Health Program Extended

From Potter County Today

denhealthbetterPotter County has qualified for another “Promising Practices” grant to extend dental care to more children from low-income families. Through the grant, the county provides dental care and education to those ages 3 to 17 who are not eligible for medical assistance and do not have dental insurance, or whose families cannot pay for needed dental treatment. Another criteria is that the child have a pre-urgent or urgent need for dental care.

Potter County Integrated Children’s Services Planning Board is implementing the dental initiative. School nurses, area health providers and dentists have applications available in their offices. More information is available from Joy Glassmire, available toll-free at 1-800-800-2560.
