Dental care goes to the people


ST. GEORGE - Southern Utahns in need of dental care will soon reap the benefits of Dixie State College's new mobile clinic.

Generous donations from dental professionals enabled the college to recently open the mobile clinic's doors to the public for the first time Wednesday.

"Now we're going to take care to those who've had a disparity of health care," said DSC faculty member Gina Cannon. Under the supervision of advisors like Cannon, students will gain hands-on experience while providing basic care for the public and underserved populations with services from cleaning and fluoride treatments to fillings and radiographic services.

Access to basic care stems from a lack of transportation for many of the underserved, Cannon said.

Re: Hair vs. Teeth

This post has actually been submitted a short time ago in response to a posted response to my first/opening post on this blog. That post is titled "Dental Industry Hype". 

Response to Anonymous Dentist:

It's been awhile since I started this blog and haven't 'budgeted' the time to get back here. But, at 11.00/hr vs. a Dentists income, I have a lot less 'time' to put into my blog, since I have to scramble everyday to juggle bills and a job and a half to barely stay afloat.

But I digress, I am responding to the anonymous dentist’s comments. So let me see if I get this right. You say Americans spend 10X more on their hair than on their teeth? I'll have to budget the time to look into those figures as well, but since I've already seen the numbers for projected spending this year on Cosmetic Dental work alone, I'll use those numbers here for brevity.
