Operational Report. April 2009 to March 2010. FROM DUST TO DENTAL OPERATORY
April 2009 to March 2010
FROM DUST TO
From October 2008 to March 2009, the construction dust has settled and a newly renovated dental operatory has emerged. With donated time and materials, CG Schmidt did the construction work to transform the former occupational therapy office into a dental clinic. The plumbing and electrical work followed by installation of the equipment, and soon thereafter, we were up and running.
Inside This Issue:
he Clinic’s First
OUR FIRST DAY
The Clinic first became operational on April 3, 2009. Dr. Rodriguez and Sue Trotter examined and treated 10 patients from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The children were referred by the public health nurses at the Green County Health Department and Monroe Clinic Pediatrics.
Fowler Memorial Dental Clinic celebrated its grand opening on May 9, 2009. Sixty-three people who attended were given a tour of the clinic. Children who completed a 30-day calendar signifying they brush and floss their teeth on a daily bases were presented with a special certificate. This is an ongoing effort to educate our patients on the importance of oral hygiene.
FAMILY GOLF PLAYDAY
Our first fundraising event was a Family Golf
Playday held at the Decatur Lake Golf Club.
Friends and supporters of the Clinic competed
for prizes and awards.
The event raised over $3000 and everyone
who participated had a great time. A special thanks to The Swiss Colony who was our major sponsor.
KIDS HAVE A
The Clinic began seeing
WIC (Women, Infants and
Children) clients in October
2009. Head Start students were screened in September 2009. Our Clinic is committed to providing a dental home for these children until they no longer require our services.
With generous donations from Monroe Clinic and Hospital Foundation, Alliant Energy and Monroe Woman’s Club, the Clinic purchased portable dental equipment.
This equipment allows us to treat students in the school setting and participate in community outreach programs such as the Wisconsin Seal-A-Smile program.
SIX MONTH CHECKUP
In November 2009, the Clinic began seeing
patients that were last treated in April 2009.
These patients were “recalled” for their 6-month cleaning and Rita Fortney was the first volunteer Dental Hygienist to see these patients. Since then, there have been more than 60 patients who received their six month cleanings. There is a roster with 60 more who are scheduled to receive their periodic exams and cleanings within the next few months.
