Here at Concorde, we pride ourselves in not only educating students but in giving back to our communities whenever we can. Our Dental Hygiene students from the Kansas City campus did just that recently when they spent an afternoon lending their expertise at a FREE citywide health and wellness fair.
TeamSmile, a local organization helping to provide dental care for underserved kids, along with the Kansas City Chiefs football team and Truman Medical Center teamed up to offer sports physicals and dental screenings.
Dr. Lisa Thurlow, one of our staff dentists screened hundreds of kids while our Dental Hygiene students handed out toothbrushes and toothpaste, assisted with x-rays and teeth cleanings and helped educate families about the importance of home dental care. Even some of our former Dental Hygiene graduates came out and spent the afternoon with us. It’s always so exciting to see former students giving back.
We are so proud of our students and faculty for sharing what they know and helping out community members!
