Thank you to the Sponsors, Donors and Golfers who supported the 20th Anniversary Speare Golf Classic
The 20th Annual Speare Golf Classic at the Owl’s Nest Resort & Golf Club in Campton, NH, raised over $35,000 for Speare’s School Dental Health Program. Sponsors and raffle donations for the event help us provide the following dental services to more than 1,600 children in our community each year:
- Free dental screenings and fluoride varnish applications
- Dental cleanings and sealants to school-aged children on a sliding fee scale, and to “at risk” pregnant women
- Case management and financial assistance for those in need
The Dental Health Program was established in 1998 in response to growing concerns of the local school nurses about the unmet dental health needs of area school children. Today, the Program provides free dental screenings, services and education to children enrolled at School Administrative Unit 48, and the Ashland, Lin-Wood and Warren School Districts.
Dental services are also offered to infants and to at-risk pregnant women through monthly clinics at Plymouth Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, Plymouth OB/GYN, and the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Program.
More than 20 area dental practices, including 20th Anniversary Sponsor Plymouth General Dentistry, currently partner with the Dental Health Program to provide care to those referred from the program with dental concerns. Support is also provided through the Dental Health Program to families who need financial help, referrals to Medicaid, and assistance with overcoming other dental care barriers.
