District-coordinated clinics provide dental care for low-income students
CASTLE ROCK – A series of clinics helped provide dental care for more than 70 DCSD students -- especially those whose parents can’t afford insurance.
In-school clinics were coordinated by the staff at Sedalia, Pioneer, Clear Sky and Acres Green Elementary Schools in late April and early May, serving nearly 70 students.
"Without such an opportunity, many of our students would not receive the dental care that others might take for granted,” said Sedalia Elementary Principal George Boser. “The families are very grateful for the kindness and generosity this service provides."
During the visit, students had the opportunity to get X-Rays, cleanings, and oral health exams. Most of the participating schools are planning to offer the service every six months. Interested schools should contact DCSD Homeless Services.
