Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease among children. In the Detroit area, the number of third graders in need of immediate dental care is two and a half times higher than it is statewide.

On Aug. 1-4, University of Detroit Mercy’s Titans for Teeth School Based Mobile Dental Clinic visited Cornerstone School, 13436 Grove Street in Detroit. Dental students under the supervision of licensed dentists and/or dental hygienist faculty member provided free dental care to 19 children between the ages of three and twelve, including X-rays, cleanings, extractions and fillings.

The Titans for Teeth School-Based Mobile Dental Clinic was funded by a $585,000 grant from the Delta Dental Foundation to help increase access to dental care for underserved children in Wayne County. This program also aligns with Delta Dental and Forgotten Harvest’s Healthy Food, Healthy Kids program, aimed at raising awareness about good oral health, providing access to nutritious food options, and building healthier communities in metro Detroit.
