WKU Institute for Rural Health Receives Gift from Delta Dental

wku black borderBOWLING GREEN, Ky. (10/21/13) - The gift will be used to purchase materials and supplies for both the preventive and comprehensive dental programs offered by the IRH’s Mobile Dental Unit. The preventive program consists of a dental sealant program for second and seventh grade children and a fluoride varnish program for head start children within Southcentral Kentucky. The comprehensive program offers limited definitive treatment (restorations and extractions) for adults at selected sites within the service area.

IRH Director Matt Hunt said the targeted patient population consists mainly of designated underserved and health professional shortage areas that have limited access to dental care. The service area also includes a low per capita income and high rate of poverty as compared to the U.S. average. The IRH estimates it will provide dental services to more than 1,300 patients during the 2013-2014 fiscal year on its Mobile Dental Unit.

“With this generous gift, the IRH will be able to continue this valuable and much needed service to rural Kentuckians,” Hunt said.

Contact: Matt Hunt, (270) 745- 4138.
