The Dental Hygiene Program is very excited to announce that they have received two grants from the Delta Dental of Kansas Foundation. First, on May 24th their program was awarded a grant of $18,134 to purchase two portable operatories. This portable equipment is being used by their students and faculty to treat long-term care patients at the Village Manor in Abilene, Kansas. Patients at this facility would otherwise not receive preventive dental care due to their limited mobility. Providing these services has broadened the students’ perspectives in the fields of community health and mobile dentistry. So far this has been a great experience for both their students and faculty members, as well as the residents at the Village Manor.
Following the approval of the grant for portable equipment the Dental Hygiene Program was awarded a toothbrush kit grant on August 27th. This grant provided their program with 4,032 toothbrush kits valued at $2,298. Each toothbrush kit contains a toothbrush, floss, and toothpaste for one individual. These kits are handed out to patients treated in their clinic as well as patients seen at community and outreach sites such as the Village Manor. The program is extremely grateful for this grant as is frees up money that would normally be spent on toothbrushes, floss, and toothpaste, and allows them to purchase more supplies and equipment to provide better care to their patients.
The Dental Hygiene Program would like to formally thank the Delta Dental of Kansas Foundation for their continuous generosity. They have provided equipment and supplies to the program for two years now that have helped them extend a helping hand to those community members in need.
