Dental Home for Refugees

We are partnering with the International Rescue Committee to incorporate oral health screenings and referrals into the settlement process, allowing newly coming refugees to gain oral hygiene knowledge and to obtain sustainableĀ care through dental home. Through this program, we will be researching the impact of oral health on childrenā€™s growth and quality of life. We hypothesize that children with dental home have fewer emergency room and/or operating room visits and better quality of life. Our DeRouen Center plans to ground efforts here in Seattle to improve the access to care for people around the world. Dental Home for Refugees in WA Brochure (PDF)
