In the United States, February is National Children’s Dental Health month! Since 1998, PRASAD Children’s Dental Health Program (PRASAD CDHP) has provided comprehensive, high quality dental services through education, prevention, detection and treatment to children in Sullivan County in New York.
Oral health impacts the overall health and lives of children. Sullivan County oral health statistics show a great need to improve children’s access to dental care.
To educate more families about the importance of regular dental care, PRASAD CDHP has recently partnered with Sullivan County WIC program to offer free dental screenings to children.
PRASAD’s volunteer hygienist engages with both parents and children, providing dental health education, guidance and encouragement for their dental care.
A mother of two recently said, “I haven’t taken them to the dentist. I wasn’t sure when they needed to go, but I’m so glad there is someone here today to look at their teeth.”
PRASAD CDHP’s success can be attributed to the wonderful community support, our dedicated staff, and most certainly our generous donors who make our work possible. Please support our amazing program today!
