That is why the Family Health Center of Battle Creek decided to provide financial assistance to mothers and kids in receiving timely and professional dental care. It’s about $50,000 that the clinic is going to receive from the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan foundation. This financial contribution will be designated to providing dental care to uninsured or underinsured mums and children of Calhoun County.
Besides, the officials are going to use the money on innovation of all health facilities of the clinic. Within this program, mothers and kids that qualify will be able to receive dental care services for three weeks. About fifty women have already participated in this program and have already solved their dental issues. It is rather important for those women that are going to get pregnant as they will not be able to use any pain killers during the pregnancy.
The program is also focused on educating kids and moms on nutrition and bad habits. A lot of hours may be devoted to the oral health of infants.
