The Dental staff strive to improve the dental health of Native American people by providing a variety of preventive and restorative services and education.
The Fond du Lac dentists and dental staff provide a full range of dental services including examinations, X-rays, cleanings, periodontal care, fissure sealants, fillings, crowns, full and partial dentures, root canals, bleaching and oral surgery.
FDL enrollees may be eligible for some contracted orthodontics services. In order to be eligible, clients must first be screened by a FDL dentist and then referred for the orthodontic care. Children are given top priority for orthodontic services. A network of local specialists provides orthodontic services.
The dental staff provides educational programs throughout the year at various events including the Annual Health Fair, Diabetic Clinics, and WIC Pick-Up. During February, National Children's Dental Health Month, several activities are targeted for children. Educational videos are available for viewing by groups or individual clients. Toothbrushes, floss, and brochures are provided to several programs for distribution to clients.
The FDL dentists oversee fluoridation activities for two fluoridated community wells that are maintained by a local water operator. The University of Minnesota School of Dentistry provides individual well analysis for fluoride through the Min No Aya Win Dental Clinic.
