Comments number during event 406-259- Children are screened in November at schools for 5700 referral to dentists in December or January for screenings and exams. Dentists can then see children on GKAS day or on days that suite their offices best. We try to focus on treating all needs for each child. 406-375- 1st time, focus on preventative, screening and 1192 sealants w/ education. 406-268- The dental hygiene and dental program department 3728 invite the dental community to work together on this day to offer dental screening. Elementary children are invited from low income communities schools. The dental hygiene and dental assistants will place sealants on appropriate teeth under the supervision of the faculty and liscensed dental professionals.Children are escorted to the fun room filled with dental preventive activities and movies. 406-449- We are a pediatric dental office who organizes the 0189 event for the city of Helena. We are located in a rural area and we see mostly high risk children in a low socio-economic class. 406-586- Bozeman is a small rural town in southwest 5880 Montana. Although a certain portion of our population is very wealthy, this wealth is supported by a substantial population of hard-working, low- wage earning individuals and families. Many of these individuals and families have difficulty making ends meet given their low wages and the high cost of living in the Bozeman area. Our local dental association is very excited to have formally organized our community’s first “Give Kids a Smile Day”! through the cooperative efforts of many other local oral health stakeholders. Every year, dentists and hygienists complete school screenings in elementary schools in our area during which children with dental needs are identified; this year children identified with dental needs without a dental “home” will be referred to local dentists participating in GKAS for complete treatment and care. We have selected several dentists to coordinate and organize follow up care for these children. Our local association has also donated funds to advertise GKAS in our local newspaper to help attract underserved children. 406-651- We will open our office to children in need of dental 4867 screenings, exams, radiographs, prophylaxis and emergency care. Billings, MT has a population of underserved children who would greatly benefit from our services. We plan to refer the children to local dentists, the community health clinic and pediatric dentists for continued care. Our program will also focus on education and prevention with counselling on oral hygiene, nutrition and the importance of regular dental visits. As periodontists, we rarely have the opportunity to treat and serve children. We are very excited to teach and treat young patients and hopefully help them develop good oral habits and lay the foundation for lifelong oral health, 406-549- We are a two dentist office that will advertise the 5861 event in our local community and outside rural communities to promote dental awareness and education. 406-241- I have a pediatric dental practice in a smaller 9672 community and will be marketing GKAS for the next few months in the hopes of getting a large turnout. I will be paying my all of my regular staff to be present for the day and we will focus on seeing as many children as we can effectively see. 406-570- Another dental hygienist and myself will be 3074 educating and screening O.D. Speer Elementary school in Deer Lodge, Montana. This community is home of the Montana State Prison. Last year, we screened the 1st graders and found that 33% of the children had unmet dental needs, not including the need for sealants. One young boy had three draining fistulas. We contacted the two local dentists ahead of time and asked if they would be willing to provided free or discounted services for the children who did not qualify for Medicaid or CHIP. The school nurse followed up with all of the children who were identified as having unmet dental needs. She contacted us this year and asked that we screen kindergarten, first, and second graders this year. 406-291- "The program that has been set up in Libby, MT 1843 through the Lincoln County Community Health Center targets elementary age children. This program allows us to be able to go into the elementary school and teach the children as well as the teachers the importance of good oral hygiene, nutrition, and fluoride treatments. Our Community Clinic services a wide range of patients covering three counties. The clinic has the opportunity to serve those patients who might not be recieving dental care due to financial limitations or certain insurances such as Medicaid. This is a great resource for the community and surrounding communities. This generous donation will help our communities' children to develop good oral hygiene practices and make them aware of the need for dental care. Further more, there is no fluoridation in the water system and the children would benefit greatly from the fluoride treatments available through Give Kids A Smile Program. 406-234- We advertise throughout the entire region that we 2926 will be offering no-cost dental care for any children who qualify, and focus on entire family education, provide prophy, flouride varnish, and exam for each child and meet all the palliative and restorative needs we can at the time, with a well-organized and motivated staff to meet all the needs of as many children and families as possible. We are the only participating dentists in our area.
