(Good Things Utah) It’s almost that time again! Back to School, the rush for all of the important things that need to be taken care of… Clothes, Shoes, Check-Ups at the Dr, and Dentist appointments… If you’re a mess of a parent like I am, you may have procrastinated or with the rising prices of EVERYTHING right now, you’re not sure exactly HOW you’re going to afford all of it.
We are lucky to have companies like Roseman Dental in cooperation with Marathon Petroleum Corporation that are generous enough to help teach children the importance of dental care and provide their services.
Roseman University is providing dental care FREE to children ages 18 and under to raise awareness about the importance of oral healthcare and help stop the spread of untreated dental decay and anyone is eligible to participate.
Children who come will receive a free dental exam and cleaning. They will also leave with a voucher for a free comprehensive exam, x-rays, sealants, and $100 of additional care which may be used at Roseman Dental, the clinical practice of Roseman University College of Dental Medicine for future treatment. The voucher is non-transferable and must be used within 6 months of the event.
Every $1 spent on the prevention of oral health issues saves taxpayers $50 in restorative and emergency procedures for individuals who lack dental insurance or are underinsured, according to the National Children’s Oral Health Foundation.
For the Back to School Brush-Up™ event, all dental work will be supervised by Roseman University faculty members who are licensed dentists in Utah. Student dentists will also provide parents with education and information about proper oral healthcare for children.
