Mobile Dental Event at The Health Center @ McKenny

On Tuesday, June 11, BHPI along with Team Wellness Center hosted a Mobile Dental Event at The Health Center @ McKenny with the goal of providing checkups for DCI Early Head Start children.

18 DCI Early Head Start children ranging from 0 to 4 years of age, with the support of volunteer dental professionals, all received dental check-ups, and learning materials that included a tube of kid’s toothpaste, a kid’s toothbrush and brushing instructions.

BHPI staff were onsite during the event interacting with the children which included face painting, coloring and goodie bags.  Staff members enjoyed being in the community engaging with the children and seeing lots of happy smiles. It was a great day had by all!
