Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Magic Valley, Idaho

Total Budget: $9,995

Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Water, sanitation and hygiene

Activity Type: Health: General

Summary: Help set up an Advanced Delivery Dental Clinic and provide oral hygiene education for patients with special needs and their care givers in Idaho, USA.


he club plans to assist the Advanced Delivery Dental Clinic to set up a "first of its kind" clinic in Idaho for people who have special healthcare needs that may not be able to be addressed in a traditional dental clinic environment. Our project will provide an oral hygiene education session for low-income people who have special healthcare-needs and their caregivers at a cost of $30/patient. The $30 covers the supplies that will be given to the patient and the salary of the healthcare worker. Supplies will be purchased by the Clinic and consist of but are not limited to; specialized bite sticks to help mouths stay open when brushing and flossing, various toothbrushes, interproximal dental cleaners, various flossers, and samples of various toothpastes so the patient can select a flavor and texture they like.

The clinic is supported by Family Health Services and Delta Dental of Idaho; however, neither entity nor Medicaid covers the cost of this Oral Hygiene Education. The clinic will open in the Fall of 2021. We will serve 333 patients in 2021/2022 who otherwise may not be served. Improvement and sustainability in oral health for these patients depends on daily home hygiene. Providing this education will vastly improve the clinical outcomes for these patients and the program's success.

About 12-15 club members will help move in boxes and equipment, as well as assist in the set-up of oral hygiene exhibits. Club members will be onsite for the grand opening and be able to take people on tours of each of the treatment rooms; each based on a unique healthcare need such as a sensory room, a room with a wheelchair lift and a room with a bariatric chair.
