Through a grant from the Telluride Foundation and Tri County Health Network, free dental care is provided to qualified children attending Garnet Mesa and Lincoln Elementary schools. Above, second grader Richard Ryan watches dental hygienist Jeannie Coulter demonstrate the proper technique for using dental floss. In addition to education, the dental professionals examined their young patients and applied sealants and fluorides. If follow-up is needed, parents are provided with a list of pediatric providers who take Medicaid and CHP+ patients. A total of 67 elementary students visited the Skippy Dental Clinic at both schools last week as part of the San Juan Kids Cavity Prevention Program.
