The Children's Volunteer Health Network Dental Bus recently visited the Children's Neighborhood at Children in Crisis. The visit was to help the children living at CIC with dental problems and routine care that often occurs when a child is abused, neglected or abandoned. During the visit, CVHN dentists and technicians provided vital care to more than 20 children in need.  Dental exams, X-rays, cleaning and sealants were provided at no cost.

According to Ken Hair, CIC president and CEO, “We opened the Children’s Neighborhood in February 2008 and since then we’ve provided a home to more than 370 kids and have kept all of our brother and sister sibling group families together. Help from the CVHN Dental Bus really makes a significant difference in the health of our children. We can’t thank CVHN enough for their wonderful support.”
