A $100,000 grant has been awarded to an oral health program on Maui to help native Hawaiian mothers and children. The grant from the Hawaii Medical Service Association (HMSA) Foundation to the program at the University of Hawai'i Maui College (UHMC) will provide educational sessions and oral health screenings in the community, according to a story on Mauinow.com.
The program will also provide an opportunity for UHMC students to get hands-on service-learning experience in the field of oral health. The Improving Oral Health for Native Hawaiian Prenatal Mothers and Children program is offered through a collaboration between UHMC, Hui No Ke Ola Pono, and Maui schools.
The program provides direct outreach at Maui schools, churches, and health fairs, to 3rd-and 7th-grade students, and women who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.
Through this outreach, women and children receive oral health and blood pressure screenings and recommended preventive dental care. Services include dental cleanings, sealants, fluoride varnish, and referral for further treatment when necessary.

The program will screen hundreds of children and approximately 50 prenatal women, the story noted.

Health grant for Hawaiian mothers and kids for oral care

The Illinois State Dental Society (ISDS) Foundation is accepting community grant applications from Illinois community health organizations for oral health projects.

The group plans to make grants from a pool of $50,000 to organizations that promote and encourage improved oral health and oral health education in Illinois, according to the organization.

Applicants must live in Illinois and be endorsed by an ISDS local dental society, and projects must benefit Illinois residents.

The application deadline is June 14. Grant applications and information are available at the ISDS Foundation website.

Female Dentists Open to Accepting Support and Guidance

 This is a very difficult economic climate and I must commend the female dentists for being the ones who step up most often and accept the guidance of a dental consultant.

Women are not afraid to ask for directions and today they are asking for direction with taking their dental practice to the next level.

KUDOS to The Women of Today's World!

Just sayn'.
