The dental staff from the Community Health Center of Fort Dodge provided dental care to students at Butler Elementary School, 945 S. 18th St., Thursday. “We are providing exams, cleanings and fluoride varnish,” said Tammy Christensen, the clinic’s dental manager. “We realized that for some parents, it is difficult to for them to get their children to the dentist, and oral health is so important for children.” The dental staff will be at Duncombe Elementary School, 1620 Sixth Ave. N., next week.
