MultiCare’s latest blog entry features a spotlight on how students in EWU’s Dental Hygiene department are filling important needs through their work in the program’s dental hygiene clinic. The clinic delivers the equivalent of almost $500,000 in quality, low-cost dental care every year. (Read the MultiCare Vitals’ blog entry and watch the video.)

MultiCare provided a $20,000 grant to support the clinic, which provides dental care for indigent, low income and underserved and noninsured populations in the Spokane area. This Inside EWU story details the grant and the impact it will make for clients in the clinic and students as they learn best practices for optimal care.
