NHTI Receives Dental Clinic Grant

12/4/2019

Concord, NH – The Allied Dental Education Department is pleased to announce that we have received a $5,000 grant from Northeast Delta Dental Foundation in support of our portable dental clinic.  This clinic has been operating in partnership with the Merrimack Valley High School since 1997, which was established as part of the Community Clinic course at NHTI.

During the 2018/2019 school year, 16 NHTI Allied Dental Health students provided care to approximately 50 high school students, who often required multiple visits to the clinic in order to complete their treatments. This partnership provides a wonderful opportunity for our students to interact with community patients, while offering no-cost dental care to those seeking to improve their oral health.

“The generous grant from the Northeast Delta Dental Foundation will help NHTI purchase much needed equipment in order to sustain this program. The equipment we are using is original from when the partnership was started in 1997 and it is time to update”, said Deb Albrecht, Department Head of NHTI’s Allied Dental Health Program.

For more information about the NHTI Allied Dental Health Program, the NHTI portable dental clinic at Merrimack Valley High School, or the Northeast Delta Dental Foundation contact Debra Albrecht at 271-6484 ext. 4141 or dalbrecht@ccsnh.edu, or Jennifer McGrath at 223-1303 or jmcgrath@nedelta.com.
