BVHC Receives Grant
Battenkill Valley Health Center (BVHC) has received a $5,000 grant from the Northeast Delta Dental Foundation to expand its community outreach and oral education program. “At BVHC, one of our goals is to provide oral health education and access to dental services that will have a lasting impact on the lives we touch. Our outreach program, which provides screenings and education to people of all ages, helps us create a community that fosters oral health, improving the overall health of our neighbors. With the support of Northeast Delta Dental we can continue this very important work,” explained Kate Bryan, director of development and community relations. In the last year and a half, the program has provided age-appropriate oral health education and screenings to the community, influencing the lives of those from infancy through adulthood. Funding through this grant will allow BVHC to purchase additional tools to provide adequate and accurate screenings outside of the dental clinic setting.
