Rice Regional Dental Clinic was established in 2007, in collaboration with the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, to train dental students and to meet the critical need of area residents with no access to dental services. Before the Dental Clinic opened, many of those patients sought help in the Hospital’s Emergency Department.
The Clinic has performed over 140,000 dental procedures on more than 13,000 patients from 17 counties. Patients include senior citizens on fixed incomes, the mentally ill and developmentally challenged, infants and children, and low-income working families.
Your generosity will help provide healthy smiles for thousands in the region.
Everyone deserves a smile.
This year’s financial goal is $300,000. The money we raise will allow Rice Memorial Hospital to provide community oral health services for those who have no access.
