Mon Health Department to provide dental services in Preston

KINGWOOD – The Preston County Health Department (PCHD) will be partnering with the Smile Express next summer.
Smile Express is the Monongalia County Health Department’s (MCHD) mobile dental program.  It focuses on services for school-aged children and pregnant women who need  dental care. The mobile dentist office currently partners with schools in Braxton, Harrison and Lewis Counties.
“They want to partner with Preston County Schools for this service,” Preston Health Department Director V.J. Davis  said. He said less than half the children approved for dental services under Medicaid go to a dentist.
