August 28, 2017
Posted In: Arizona Campus, ASDOH, Events, Student Headlines

For the second year, A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health (ATSU-ASDOH) students and faculty collaborated with Midwestern University dental students and faculty to serve children from Title 1 schools across the valley. The two universities held a back to school clothing drive with dental care from July 17th -20th at Grand Canyon University.

Over 3,000 children visited the event to receive new uniforms, shoes, and backpacks filled with schools supplies. About 1,000 children received dental screenings, fluoride varnish application, and referrals to low-cost dental clinics. In addition, each child received brushing education, nutritional education, and activities on sugar foods.

    This is an example of an wonderful collaboration that has the potential to begin to improve oral health outcomes within vulnerable populations as well as enhance health literacy. Thanks for all that you do.
