Last month Roseman Dental held its annual free Back to School Brush-Up™ event where our dental students and faculty provided dental screenings and cleanings to children in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade for the 2021 – 2022 academic school year. Those that attended the event received a voucher to return to Roseman Dental for a free comprehensive exam, free x-rays, and up to $50 in additional care. While waiting to be treated, participants enjoyed the oral health carnival where they learned about good oral hygiene habits and tips, how to properly brush their teeth and floss and what foods are good and bad for your teeth through several interactive carnival games.
At the end of the day, Roseman Dental students, faculty and staff were able to provide free dental screenings and cleanings to 200 children. Of the 200 patients treated, 37.91 percent hadn’t seen a dentist in over a year. In addition, 109 out of the 200 children did not have dental insurance.
This event was not possible without our wonderful sponsors. Thank you to our Presenting Sponsor – Intermountain Healthcare – and our two Bronze Sponsors – KKOS Lawyers and Northern Wasatch Association of Realtors. Your contributions allowed us to provide needed dental care to children in our community.
