Dental needs survey to conducted

As a first step to working toward placing a dental hygienist in public schools and to bring a dentist closer to the communities, Neighborhood Connections volunteers will be attending Town Meetings and be out in other public places surveying residents.

  1. When was the last time you saw a dentist?
  2. How far did you have to drive?
  3. Do you have dental insurance?

Neighborhood Connections, through monthly meetings with its local community partners, is studying the difficulty accessing local dental care. Currently, residents must drive at least 20 miles to get to a dentist. Many dentists are not taking new patients or they don’t take dental insurance.

So when a Neighborhood Connections volunteer approaches with these questions, please participate.
