Monica Reyes, our Health and Human Services Program Officer, attended several community events to hand out oral health kits and some of our 25th Anniversary goodies.
Monica is the coordinator for the Berks County Task Force for Oral Health, a community-driven effort convened by Berks County Community Foundation to turn the tide on the county’s poor oral health.
When kids in Berks County do not see a dentist until after they are 3 years old, they risk having more challenging health issues that can affect them for the rest of their lives.
By focusing on young children in Berks County, the Task Force’s Brush Up on Oral Health Campaign is reaching youth at the most vulnerable age for oral health issues, establishing healthy practices, and beginning to curb the county’s poor dental health issues.
