Annually, the first Friday in February UNMC holds a Dental Day for our youth across Nebraska. Public Health Solutions has partnered with UNMC to make sure youth, that need dental check-ups, can get services the need for their health and wellbeing.
UNMC’s yearly Dental Day provides an opportunity for uninsured and underinsured children to get free dental work.
PHS is committed to helping children access this free service, Dental Day, by providing the necessary screening, and limited transportation services for children from our area.
PHS takes part in Dental Day to ensure children receive care they may not receive otherwise.
Dental Day targets those that are uninsured or underinsured. However, those children with Medicaid are also able to attend if they have difficulty finding a dentist who works locally.
To participate, parents must complete following the registration form:

Oral Health Program
Public Health Solutions provides dental health education and preventative low-cost services to children in Fillmore, Gage, Jefferson, Saline and Thayer counties, targeting kids aged birth to third grade . We strive to educate parents and children on healthy oral care habits, including what causes cavities and how diet can affect mouth health, and also proper brushing and flossing methods.
Services We Provide
- Fluoride varnish
Each person screened also receives a dental care bag, which is filled with a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and educational materials. Our goal is for every child to have the right information and tools to make good oral health choices.
