Minnesota-based Children’s Dental Services is in the process of opening a full service oral health hub at 25 W. Superior St. in downtown Duluth.
DULUTH, Minn. – Within the next year there will be more options for children to receive dental care in the Northland.
Minnesota-based Children’s Dental Services is in the process of opening a full service oral health hub here in Duluth. The nonprofit already serves the Northland community through traveling services but this building at 25 W. Superior St. in downtown Duluth will help reach more people.
“We actually take mobile dental equipment and set it up in schools and community centers but this will be the first time that we’ll have a bricks and mortar location in Duluth and it’s going to be a huge asset to the community,” associate director of Children’s Dental Services Erianna Reyelts said.
This new location also hopes to help the needs of underserved children with a goal of improving the overall health of 1000 kids from low income households, tribal members and other communities of color.
“Dental care is the most common chronic childhood illness, more than asthma, diabetes, obesity and its completely preventable. And when our kiddos in Duluth and across the Northland don’t have access to care, it means they can’t do their best in school. So this comprehensive hub will really get to restoring their oral health,” executive director of Children’s Dental Services Sarah Wovcha added.
This new Duluth location of Children’s Dental Services is set to open either later this year or in early 2023.
