Standing Rock Pediatric Dental Days Oct. 11 - 12, 2013

Pediatric dentist volunteers are needed for the Pediatric Dental Days Event to be held Oct. 11 - 12, 2013, at Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in Ft Yates, N.D. The children of the tribe have large unmet dental needs and have difficulty receiving specialty dental treatment. The two-day event will utilize the Mission of Mercy model with equipment provided by America's Dentists Care Foundation. Forty dental chairs will be set up in the Prairie Knights Casino where 20 pediatric dentists will provide an estimated $200,000 of donated restorative dental care for 300 - 400 children of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Oral surgeons will also be on site and preventive areas will provide education to parents. Most of the children receiving treatment will have been pre-screened with some referred directly to area pediatric dentists for treatment under general anesthesia. Tem- porary North Dakota dental licenses will be obtained for out-of-state pediatric dentists. Lodging and food will be provided for volunteers. Partners in the event include the North Dakota and South Dakota Dental Associations, as well as the North Dakota and South Dakota Associations of Pediatric Dentists.
