Bennington Oral Health Coalition Makes A Difference in the Community
The mission of the Bennington Oral Health Coalition (BOHC) is to improve oral health outcomes in the Bennington area. This past year a team of volunteers has created amazing results to change the overall oral health of many citizens in Bennington, making sure that dental health is a valuable and critical part of staying healthy, self confident, employable, and pain free.
BOHC’s volunteers have been involved in teaching educational programs, screening students for oral health needs, distributing information about dentist access, working at the Free Dental Day, educating & registering voters, surveying citizens about their unmet dental needs, activating unused dental chairs, and helping create a sustainable town sanctioned Oral Health Commission. ACT/BCRC VISTA, Nevin Lessard (pictured with students), has played a key role in many of BOHC’s educational programs. For more information about the BOHC, call Lisa Kazazean at 802-447-3400 ext 3.
