The Poweshiek County Dental Coalition has partnered for its 8th year with local dentists to offer a FREE dental clinic day on Friday, January 31st from 7:30am to 4:00pm.  This is a no-school day for Grinnell students due to parent conferences.  The clinic is for children ages 3-18 who have Medicaid/Title 19 or no insurance due to lower income and will offer exams and limited services as needed.  A parent/guardian needs to make an appointment prior to January 24th by either calling Dental Associates in Grinnell at 641-236-6174, Family Dentistry in Grinnell at 641-236-6169, Family Dentistry in Montezuma at 641-623-2013, or Family Dentistry in Victor at 319-647-2141.  Appointments will be scheduled on a first come first served basis. A parent/guardian is encouraged to attend the clinic with the child, although if cannot a consent form must be completed at the office prior to the clinic day.  Transportation will be available upon request and the need should be indicated when making the appointment. Please see the flyer in the district’s Virtual Backpack for additional information!
