Western Wayne Family Health Centers

Taylor, MI 48180

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease in America. More than 50 percent of five to nine year-old children have one cavity or filling and 25 percent of poor children have not seen a dentist before entering kindergarten.

Delta Dental, in partnership with the Michigan Department of Community Health, will host a FREE dental clinic at the Western Wayne Family Health Center (26650 Eureka Road, Taylor MI 48180) for underserved children tomorrow from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

This event is FREE and open to children grades 1st – 7th.

Parents interested in registering their children should call (734) 941-4991. Registration is encouraged but not required.

Sealants and varnishes are part of a child’s preventative dental maintenance. They will help to prevent cavities, but does not replace fillings. For children without dental coverage, sealant and varnish could mean the difference between a life with good oral health and one plagued with dental problems.

Participating children will also receive FREE oral health kits including a toothbrush, dental floss, timer and other goodies.
