Appointments still available for area youth
The Delta Dental Mobile Program is returning to the area with planned visits in Madison and Flandreau. The program provides care to children who cannot afford or access a dentist because of cost, lack of insurance, transportation or other reasons.
The truck will be in Madison July 11-14 and in Flandreau August 16-19. Appointments are still available for both visits.
A full range of dental care is available, including exams, cleanings, preventive treatments and cavity fillings. Oral health education is also provided to patients so they can continue to care for their teeth after the visit.
Children from their first truth through age 21 are eligible. Services are provided at no cost to the child or family, and insurance is not necessary.
Registration in advance is needed, and a patient consent and information form must be completed. Appointments can be made with Mendy Herke at ICAP at (605) 256-6518 Ext. 121.
This will be the truck’s tenth visit to Madison and fourth trip to Flandreau.
In 2021, the Delta Dental team provided preventative and restorative dental care valued at $43,916 to 56 Madison area children. In Flandreau, 41 youth received care valued at $24,847.
The program is once again a partnership between regional non-profits Inter-Lakes Community Action Partnership (ICAP), Interlakes Area United Way and Delta Dental of South Dakota.
