Lanark Youth Dental Treatment Program
The Lanark Youth Dental Treatment Program, funded by the National Child Benefit Reinvestment Fund and carried out by the Health Unit’s dental staff, provided support for emergency dental treatment for youth aged 14-19 years in Lanark County.
Ninety-five students were screened by Health Unit Dental Hygienists in high schools, alternative learning centres, and other community settings. Area dentists, high school principals and teachers, and Health Unit dental staff worked together to help 28 youth receive dental treatment to alleviate pain and restore function. Funding will continue for this program for the year 2000.
