Dentist Anyone?

March 26, 2008

How are the teeth in your part of the world? One of the things I have learned in ministering within an outwardly focused world is that there are a lot of things going on that you can get connected with.

This week we finalized an agreement with the Oklahoma Dental Foundation to be at our Back to School event this year. One of our members saw a news story about their mobile dental unit and so we made some calls and now we have a day for kids who would not otherwise receive dental care.

It just took some phone calls and a willingness to do what was needed. We have to pre screen all of the children for income levels and need but one phone call to a school nurse and that was taken care of. They volunteered to do whatever was necessary to get the kids on the list.

All it took was people with an eye for the community. We will make a donation to the foundation but it is not required. When I told them the amount they said we will come out two or three times. That is the image of the church we want to present isn’t it?

Who knows, maybe there is a mobile dental unit for the underserved in your area. Maybe you are a phone call away from impacting your community.
