The Pierce County Oral Health Coalition is on summer hiatus and will reconvene in September. There is no meeting today.

Even though we take a break from coalition meetings, summer is not an idle time for oral health advocates. Coalition members recently completed a low-cost dental clinic at Bates Technical College, coordinated by the Pierce County Dental Society and staffed by many volunteers. Others will be taking advantage of many opportunities to promote oral health and connect individuals to dental care via summer community health, back-to-school and other fun events.

We wish our colleagues and friends a wonderful, productive summer! See you in the Fall.
