WKU’s Institute for Rural Health will use a $5,000 gift from Delta Dental of Kentucky to purchase dental materials for the Mobile Dental Unit.

The preventive services offered by the Mobile Dental Unit staff help provide access to dental care for children and adults in the service area. During the 2013-14 fiscal year, more than 2,700 procedures were completed on the Mobile Dental Unit. Without help from organizations like Delta Dental of Kentucky, this service would not be possible.

“This generous gift will allow us to continue offering services to underserved individuals in our rural areas who truly need these services,” said Daniel Carter, IRH Dental Director.

On Sept. 12, Micaela Skura, Business Project Liaison for Delta Dental of Kentucky, visited WKU and met with Dr. John Bonaguro, Dean of the College of Health and Human Services, and the IRH staff to discuss continued partnerships. Delta Dental of Kentucky has cumulatively awarded WKU more than $100,000.
