Health Alliance Launches Dental Program for Homeless Children


The Community Health Alliance announced today that it has a new dental program for homeless children at the Record Street Health Center.

Oral health classes and screenings will be conducted by a dental hygienist, and dental services will be offered to the youth once a month.

“We will always make sure kids are in the conversation when we talk about which programs to bring to the community,” said Health Alliance CEO Charles Duarte.

The Record Street Health Center is focused on serving Reno area houseless individuals. It is located between the men’s and women’s shelters and saw more than 1,000 homeless patients in 2016.

Other services, offered at no cost to patients, include medical care, behavioral health and additional therapy.
