Native America Calling

July 22, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Today, July 22 – Accessing dental care

Maj. (Dr.) Bradshaw Stout, the 380th Expeditionary Medical Group dentist, performs a surgical extraction on a patient Sept. 22, 2011, at the new dental clinic at an air base in Southwest Asia. Stout is assisted by Master Sgt. Dwayne Shrewsbury, the NCO in charge of aerospace medicine for the 380th EMDG. The clinic provides emergency dental care to the deployed Airmen, Soldiers and Sailors at the base, and will save the wing approximately $15,000 a month. Prior to the clinic’s opening, patients were sent off base for dental care. (U.S. Air Force photo/Master Sgt. Chance Babin)

Dentists adhering to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations are prioritizing the most critical dental needs during the pandemic. But a good portion of dental care is prevention, like regular cleanings and check-ups. In some remote areas of Native America, dentists are in short supply. Some programs are training people to step in as dental health aides to fill in gaps in dental care. We’ll hear from experts about what Native people can expect as they work to access dental care.
