Dental Outreach

Healthy Teeth, Healthy Bodies

The dental department at St. Barnabas maintains one of our most active community outreach schedules. St. Barnabas dentists visit local schools, Head Start, and senior centers and participate in community health fairs throughout the year. Using animal puppets with big choppers, they demonstrate the correct way to brush, garnering the attention of all ages. Free oral health screening is available to the community on specified occasions throughout the year, including several dates during Children’s Dental Health Month in February and National Oral Health month in April. If your organization would like information on our dental community outreach program, please call 718-960-6498.
