Swope Health Services is expanding dental services at the Central, Wyandotte, Northland and Independence facilities.
The expansion brings new dental staff members as well as additional dental clinic space:
-At the Wyandotte Clinic, we have added three new dental offices plus an additional dental darkroom, supply room and provider office. This brings the total number of dental chairs to eight and allows the clinic to offer dental services daily.
-We’ve also added another dentist to the Wyandotte team, Dr. Arezo Hesaraki. She will join Dr. David Ewing in providing daily services at Wyandotte. She’ll also work in rotation at the Northland Clinic with Dr. Andrew Medlin.
-We’ve added a new dental room in Northland Clinic, which now has three dental chairs.
-We have added a new dental hygienist, Ashlee Miller, who will work at Central and at the Independence Clinic, with Dr. Ryan Cox.
-SHS is also adding a dental community education specialist. This position will promote dental health and awareness, through medical referrals and community outreach. This position will allow for greater outreach to the homeless population and for work in collaboration with SHS behavioral health services.
Beyond these expanded facilities and services, SHS is reaching out to Mid-America Headstart programs to provide additional dental screenings for children. So far, SHS has provided these dental exams and cleanings for four-year-olds in the Headstart programs in the Center and Grandview school districts.
This year, SHS will also provide Headstart screenings in the Raytown School District.
