Public Health to Provide Exams and Preventive Dental Care in Champaign-Urbana Schools

Thursday - Dec 29, 2005

Program Will Reach Out to All Champaign-Urbana School Children

Starting January 10, 2006, Champaign-Urbana Public Health District dentists and dental hygienists will go directly to area schools to offer exams and preventive dental services to all schoolchildren who opt to take advantage of the program.
