Oral Health America closed out the year by celebrating its partnership with The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Dentistry and Ronald McDonald House CharitiesÂ® (RMHC) of Greater Houston/Galveston, Inc.! The Texas-based Ronald McDonald Care Mobile program joins more than 300 partners in Oral Health America's Smiles Across AmericaÂ® (SAA) network. They received $20,000 in grant funding from OHA over two years to support the expansion of oral health preventive and limited restorative services to 1,000 students at CHRISTUS Foundation for HealthCare's school-based clinics.
In a program at UT's Denton A. Cooley, M.D. and Ralph C. Cooley, DDS, University Life Center, partners from industry, the healthcare community, and Communities in Schools-Houston came together to share common commitments and host an interactive brush-a-thon for Yellowstone Academy students, helping them to learn the importance of brushing their teeth for two minutes twice every day.
