Hamilton Community Health Network and Michigan State College of Human Medicine bringing dental exams and more to Flint
(Flint, MI) – February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. If you have a child who is in need of a dental exam, plan to attend Hamilton Community Health Network’s (HCHN) Kids Dental Day on Monday, February 17th. The event runs from 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM at all HCHN dental clinics and is open to any child regardless of insurance coverage.
The program will consist of free oral exams, cleanings, x rays, sealants and fluoride varnish applications! This event will also provide fun games and activities for all children in attendance. New this year, the students from the Michigan State College of Human Medicine will be on hand providing a health screening event where adults can learn about their own health needs from blood pressure to oral health, while their children are being examined.
“Oral health plays a vital role in our overall health”, explains Dr. Miriam Parker, Dental Health Director at HCHN. “Without proper oral hygiene, bacteria can reach levels that might lead to oral infections, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Teaching children at a young age to take care of their teeth can help reduce their chances of complications down the road”.
HCHN’s dental clinics are located at:
- Main Clinic: 2900 Saginaw St., Flint
- Burton Clinic: G-3375 S. Saginaw Street Flint, MI
- Dental North Clinic: 5399 N. Saginaw Street Flint
