“A Dentist’s Guide to Head Start and Points of Light”
While most dentists have heard of the Head Start program, many are not aware of its mission nor the services it offers, one of which is serving at-risk disadvantaged preschool children who are at the highest risk for dental caries. Recently, Michigan’s Head Start program produced a video that includes a visit to a pediatric dentist’s office to talk with Dr. Kevin Hale about Head Start’s and Points of Light’s common goals and the importance of dentists everywhere having “skin in the game” when it comes to the willingness – even the moral obligation – to treat Head Start patients in their practice.
The video is available on our website and the Head Start Michigan YouTube Channel.
I invite you to watch and share the video with your colleagues and patients.
