KHTS was pleased to welcome our friends from the Foundation for Children’s Dental Health to the KHTS Community Resource Station located in the Westfield Valencia Town Center. Brendie Bandara, Ericka Watson and Jim Backer were featured on the KHTS Non-Profit Spotlight show – hosted by Janice Murray . The Non-Profit Spotlight is sponsored by Valencia Acura .
The Foundation for Children’s Dental Health, Santa Clarita’s first-ever program is dedicated to providing free dental care, emergency services and oral hygiene education to low-income children and their families in the Santa Clarita Valley. Before the Foundation was created, local low-income children and their families often had to go without even the most basic dental care.
Since its inception in 1993, over $981,000 in scheduled dental care has been brought to 1082 children and $173,000 of emergency dental care to 346 children. The Foundation has educated over 40,000 preschool students, their parents and elementary school children about the importance of daily oral care and healthy living.
Through fundraising, The Foundation for Children’s Dental Health continues to offer Dental Clinics, Oral Hygiene Education and an Emergency Referral Network.
Our thanks to Brendie Bandara, Ericka Watson and Jim Backer for spending time with us at the KHTS Community Resource Station.
