THE STORY:

Dental organisation in Russia need money for mobile clinic.

There is an ever-increasing need to provide oral health care to populations that have difficulty gaining access to the traditional dental care delivery system. These groups include a variety of people with special needs such as those who reside in residential facilities or are homebound, people who live in isolated areas or where there are no dental offices, or children who don't have regular access to preventive services.

What populations need our services?
Low-income or underinsured individuals or families
Isolated or very rural populations
Very young children
Underserved children whose families cannot afford dental care
Persons in residential care facilities
People who are "homebound," bedridden, very frail or receiving hospice services at home
Persons with a variety of special health care needs
Migrant and seasonal farmworkers
People who are homeless or temporarily displaced


Shocking news

Dental caries, also known as cavities or tooth decay, is a communicable disease. It starts with common bacteria, often passed from mother to child. The bacteria form acids in the mouth, demineralizing tooth enamel. Decay is preventable with good oral health practices. Without them, it can progress, penetrating the tooth's hard surfaces, allowing bacteria to infect the tooth's interior and causing an abscess. Without attention, the infection can travel to surrounding tissue or other organs, including the brain.



The poverty of people in Russia, periods of homelessness and difficulties with transportation, phone service and mail delivery all complicated the search for care.





Portable Dental Services located in Russia will provide portable dental treatment to individuals that are home-bound ; reside in assisted living facilities and nursing homes.

We will treat those patients who have:


Cerebral Palsy,
arthritis,
obesity,
trauma, and
other homebound problems

With the new mobile clinic it would schedule about 2,700 appointments annually for preventative and restorative care.



Mobile dental services can be done in
Nursing Homes
Individual private homes
Retirement communities
senior centers
senior retirement communities

Dental health is critical especially for those who are in poor health to begin with. Dental decay can seriously affect the health of people.

Our main goals are:
-Increase the availability and timeliness of comprehensive dental care for people
-Expand the options for providing community-based preventive oral health services for pregnant women and children.
-Expand the options for seniors in congregate and residential care facilities to receive comprehensive dental services.


We wish to thank all those who generously contributed to our action
