Summer migrant dental clinic
The School of Dentistry's summer migrant dental clinic will operate for its 30th year June 23-Aug. 1. Dental students will provide a range of oral health care services to migrant workers and their children at three schools in the Traverse City area: Elk Rapids Middle, Kaleva Community Elementary and Suttons Bay Elementary. Basic services include screenings, oral exams and cleanings. When necessary, extractions, fillings and x-rays will be provided. The dental students will advise parents and children on the correct way to care for teeth and other actions to improve oral health. More than twice as many students volunteered to participate in this year's program than in the previous year. Last year, nearly 300 adults and children received care at the three sites.
