More than 1,000 Bethel elementary students will receive free dental services over the next few weeks.
The Dental Prevention Team from Community Health Centers of Lane County has begun providing dental exams, cleanings, fluoride varnish and oral health education in Bethel schools.
Nearly 200 students will also be receiving free dental sealants, a clear plastic coating that’s painted onto permanent molars to provide protection from cavities.
This is the second round of treatments in Bethel by the Dental Prevention Team this school year. The value of their services is more than $500,000.
When they were little, you baby-proofed your home. They need your guidance now more than ever.
That’s the message of Wednesday’s Teen Proof Your Home, an event at Willamette High School.
The free one hour information and education meeting by the Lane County Prevention Program is designed to teach parents how to approach practical safety in the home as it relates to teenagers and pre-teens.
Topics will include parties, alcohol, prescriptions, poisons, gambling, suicide prevention, the internet and more.
The event will be held Wednesday April 18th at 7:00 p.m., in room 131 at Willamette.
