Face and Jaw Surgery Center Volunteers Dental Care to Children in Standing Rock
FORT YATES, NORTH DAKOTA (October 17, 2013) — Standing Rock Pediatric Dental Days, a two-day endeavor to offer much-needed oral health services to children in the area, saw great success over the weekend with the collaboration of dozens of dental care professionals and volunteers.
Held at the Prairie Knights Resort in Fort Yates, the event kicked off early on Friday morning and lasted well into the afternoon on Saturday. A host of altruistic supporters and members of the dental community donated chairs, equipment and other necessary supplies.
To support the cause and offer their assistance in meeting the many dental needs of youth in the region, Face and Jaw Surgery Center sent two of its top oral surgeons to perform needed procedures at the event: Dr. Omar C. Chahal, D.D.S., M.D. and Dr. Jonathan R. Gray, D.D.S.
“We recognize the importance of keeping our community’s children healthy, particularly through providing adequate oral health care beginning at an early age,” says Dr. Chahal. “An event like this adds emphasis to that objective and, at the same time, allows these kids easy access to the services they really need now.”
Preliminary numbers for Standing Rock Pediatric Days include an estimated $150,000 worth of care donated to 367 children aged 0 to 18 in the area.
