Heartland Awarded Oral Health Expansion Grant
Lawrence, KS

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) announced on Thursday, June 16, 2016 that Heartland Community Health Center will be awarded Oral Health Service funds to increase access to integrated oral health care services and improve oral health outcomes for Health Center Program patients. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell announced nearly $156 million in funding to support 420 health centers in 47 states. Among the awards is $350,000 to Heartland Community Health Center of Lawrence, one of only six awards made to Kansas Health Centers.

“We have worked hard at Heartland to acquire expertise in the delivery of interdisciplinary healthcare services,” said Jon Stewart, Heartland CEO. “We consider the team at Douglas County Dental Clinic to be experts in the delivery of dental services for the targeted population and we look forward to increased collaborative to provide high-quality oral health services for our community”

Heartland will be partnering with Douglas County Dental Clinic to bring a satellite clinic of dental services under Heartland’s roof. The funding enables health centers to expand integrated oral health care services and increase the number of patients served.

“Douglas County Dental Clinic is committed to partnering with Heartland to offer affordable, comprehensive dental services. Both organizations strongly believe these funds will serve to help alleviate an enormous need by offering affordable dental services in our community,” Julie Branstrom, Douglas County Dental Clinic Executive Director.

“Oral health is an important part of our overall physical health and well-being,” said Secretary Burwell. “The funding we are awarding will reduce barriers to quality dental care for hundreds of thousands of Americans by bringing new oral health providers to health centers across the country.”
