Students at ULSD have made efforts to provide screenings and oral health care for the Hispanic population in their community. Screenings and education programs, some in partnership with the HSDA, are important to their outreach efforts.
Faculty, staff and students from CDMA will partner with Give Kids A Smile this month to provide oral health care to local children. Over 350 children are expected to receive free screenings and treatments.
Two-fold Mission for UNMC COD’s Western Division Dental Hygiene Program
