Back to School Bonanza 2014


On Saturday, August 23, 2014, KidzKare hosted the Back-to- School Bonanza at RARA.  This event was for students who are uninsured or who have medicaid.  The event was a huge success with over 700 participants!  The event provided health, vision, and dental screenings for the students.  It also provided haircuts, clothing, shoes, food, and school supplies.  The community support from volunteers and businesses was fantastic!  Dr. Ohlsson was proud to be a supporter!  He volunteered his time and services.  Dr. Ohlsson was able to provide dental screenings for over thirty students.  He checked for cavities, trauma, infections, and performed cancer screenings with his ‘Oral ID’ light.  Each student was given a treatment outline which explained their dental needs and health prognosis.  Dr. Ohlsson then educated the student and their family about the importance of healthy teeth and gums and how they are connected to the well being of each person.  In addition, each student received a toothbrush, floss, and toothpaste to help them get started on their paths to healthy teeth and gums.  Dr. Ohlsson also has offered to provide the necessary treatment for several of the students.  We at Rochester Hills Dental are very proud that we could be part of a terrific event!  We also would like to thank our suppliers who helped make it possible with donations for the students.  So thanks to Hu-Friedy, GUM, Patterson Dental, and Crest!
