Read Up on the Success of Our 2017 Flint Community Dental Health Fair
The 2nd Annual “Brush up on Dental Health” Fair was held on August 12, 2017. The goals for this year’s fair were to: (1) screen at least 250 people; (2) increase participation among men and the younger age groups; (3) increase dental service utilization from 50% to 75%. Our first two goals have already been met.
We had over 300 participants come to our health fair, and screened 271 of the attendees. We also increased male participation from 35% to 39% and increased participation in the younger age groups (40 years and under) from 28% to 66%. We are currently in the process of following up with attendees who were recommended dental treatment and those who were provided with mouth guards.
There will be further reports and updates on the outcomes and success of our health fair so stay tuned!
