Community Health of South Florida, Inc. (CHI) and The Children’s Trust have teamed up to brighten smiles to thousands of South Dade’s children. CHI’s mobile van has a team of the best dentists and licensed dental hygienists and top of the line equipment offering dental exams, cleanings, varnishes and sealants to uninsured and under-insured children who attend The Children’s Trust affiliated early childcare, afterschool care and summer programs.
Parents and guardians interested in enrolling their children in the program will be provided with information and will be required to sign a consent form. The services are free for those who qualify.
Many working parents often have to balance a difficult dilemma – risk taking a day off from work and losing a day’s pay to take their children to a dentist for cleanings, sealants or oral exams. With this grant, CHI is able to alleviate that stress by going directly to schools and summer camps and other childcare facilities.
A team of highly trained dental hygienists will be offering this service throughout Florida City, Leisure City, Cutler Bay, West Perrine, Naranja, Kendall, Coconut Grove, South Miami and the surrounding areas.
