What if the parents of english speaking children are afraid of their kids catching incurable TB or lice or bedbugs from the illegal children. One of the less noted parts about illegal aliens and their children is the lack of medical testing, something Ellis Island was strict about. What happens to poor whites is they are displaced from most of the programs geared for the poor because they are shoved aside by the very aggresive immigrant populations.
North Clackamas Sch. Dist.– 04/30/12
Thanks to a joint effort between the Dental Health Solutions program in North Clackamas Schools and the Kaiser dental program, on Saturday 29 students received free dental treatment. Bilingual teen volunteers from the Sabin-Schellenberg Health Services program supported the event.
The Give Kids a Smile Day event has become an annual event, part of a grant-funded program that provides dental screenings, dental hygiene instruction, and urgently needed treatments to children who lack dental insurance or access to care.
“Children cannot focus on learning when they suffer chronic dental pain,” said program administrator Leslie Robinette. “Providing dental care not only improves students’ overall health, but it also helps them return to the classroom ready to learn.”
More volunteers are needed for upcoming dental van and screening events. To volunteer as a dentist or hygienist with Dental Health Solutions, call Marci or Angela at 503-353-5663.
