In conjunction with National Children’s Dental Health Month in February, Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato announces a pilot project that expands preventive dental services for children at Eastridge Clinic.

Funded through grants from Mankato Area Foundation and Delta Dental, a number of dental services are now being offered to children up to the age of 18, including oral exams, dental cleanings, X-rays and application of fluoride varnish and sealants. The expansion of services aims to help address the wide disparities in oral health care access for vulnerable and underserved populations.
