In honor of Dental Health Month (February) Fort HealthCare’s School Nurse program decided it would be wonderful if patients of Jefferson County Dental Clinic could go home with a toothbrush, toothpaste, gel after their visit to the clinic. The school districts in which the school nurses serve as well as Fort HealthCare Hospital and clinics collected dental supplies during the month of February. These donations will be distributed to the Community Dental Clinic’s patients during their visits.
