As we all know oral health is vitally important to our overall health. And the first step to good oral health is a visit to a hygienist. Crossover started our Dental program in 2008 with a grant from the
Virginia Health Care Foundation
. As soon as we opened the door the demand for services was huge.
Over the years with only one part time hygienist, the demand became overwhelming. At one point the wait for teeth cleaning was 4 months!
years ago, another grant from the VHCF provided some relief. This grant gave us funds to expand the hygiene program. Our current hygienist, Lisa Schaub, was able to go from part time to full time and we also hired two new part time hygienists(meet them all below).
These expanded services allow us to do cleanings seven days a week. This is the first step to more advanced care with our volunteer dentists.
Thank you to the Virginia Health Care Foundation for your continued support!
