Casa Grande, AZ – Sun Life Family Health Center, Pinal County’s largest provider of primary care, received a $600,000 Oral Health grant for the Pinal Regional Partnership Council of the Arizona Early Childhood Development and Health Board (First Things First) in 2011.
The FTF grant is used to implement a mobile dental program in Pinal County, bringing dental screenings to many remote communities normally isolated from dental services. The FTF grant has helped Sun Life Family Health Center provide comprehensive dental screenings and fluoride varnish application, as well as oral health education, to children birth to five years of age, as well as prenatal women.
With these funds Sun Life has purchased a Mobile Dental Van to deliver these services to communities all throughout Pinal County. Sun Life will be holding Mobile Dental Van Open Houses at each office January 17-25.
