The Eugene Education Foundation and School District 4J are excited to announce a partnership with the Lane County Medical Society and Lane County Dental Society to help fund our “Miles of Smiles” program. This program provides cleanings at LCC, oral health education, and restorative dental care to some of the neediest students in our community. LCMS contributed $3,500 and LCDS contributed $1,400, ensuring that hundreds of 4J students have access to dental care.
Dental pain is one of the leading causes of absences for K-12 students, and for many of their parents, accessing dental care is nearly impossible. Oral health is a critical factor in the healthy development of children. With these services, our students can attend school pain-free and ready to learn. We’re so thankful for the support of the Lane County Medical and Dental Societies!
