ANGOON - The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium's Jessie Norma Jim Health Center in Angoon will host a special Denali KidCare pediatric dental clinic on Aug. 23-27.
This special pediatric clinic will feature dental examination appointments on Aug. 23-24, with follow-up treatment taking place Aug. 25-27. The clinic is open for all children up to 18 years old only who currently are enrolled in the State of Alaska's Denali KidCare program or are on Medicaid. Dr. Howard Hunt will lead the pediatric dental team for this clinic.
Denali KidCare is a state program designed to make sure Alaska resident children younger than 18 of working and non-working parents, and expecting mothers who meet income guidelines, have insurance so they have full access to health care.
