Focus on the Children

Children with limited access to dental care will receive oral health screenings at schools, dental cleanings, examinations and x-rays at the clinic and additional dental treatments as needed, either at the Appleton clinic or on the mobile clinic. By providing free oral health care to children in area school districts through the Focus on the Children program, we will decrease the number of children who need to use dental emergency visits in the future.

With over 100 volunteer dentists, 40 volunteer hygienists, Marquette student dentists, FVTC Hygiene students and dental assisting students, we are able to provide patients with preventative and emergency treatment. Because of this, the current percentage of child emergencies in children who have been in the program for the past 4 years has dropped by 80% in  a 14 school pilot school district.
