American Dental Assistants Association    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Carmen Fuller recently won the ADAA Student Achievement award from the ADAA. She talks about the award, along with the need for early intervention and oral hygiene, among other things. "I think that many of the oral problems in patients originate from the lack of early education in oral hygiene, so one of my jobs as a dental assistant is to get involved in communities where I can share my knowledge and make everybody aware of this problem, especially parents," Fuller said.

Volunteer dental assistants needed for our dental clinic in Detroit
American Dental Assistants Association
St. Vincent de Paul's Dental Clinic at 3000 Gratiot, Detroit was reopened on May 4, to serve underprivileged adults in need of dental care and who lack insurance or are underinsured. We have a well equipped clinic with two chairs. Currently the clinic is opened once a week: on the first Tuesdays each month from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. and is staffed by a wonderful team of four highly experienced, retired dentists - Dr. John Greig, Dr. Bob Cosgrove, Dr. Dan Scanlon and Dr. Bud Tishkowski; who with Dental Coordinator Donna Norton, Dental Assistant Cynthia Andrew, Dental Trainee Rita Stewart and Dental Hygienist Deanna Alexander have volunteered their services. The clinic primarily treats adults in need of filling and/or extraction. Oral surgeries and partial or full dentures are referred to St. John's Oral Surgery and Dental Clinic, University of Detroit Mercy Dental School or other dental labs. During our very first month — May, we had over a hundred patients sign up, of which only about 40 could be treated!!

To fill this huge need and to expand the range of services, we are looking for Volunteer Dental Assistants so that more of these hurting poor could be treated without an extensive wait.
