Walk-in fluoride clinic for kids in need coming up

The Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department will hold a walk-in dental fluoride clinic for kids in need from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday, May 7 at 200 Maine St. in Lawrence.

The treatment is offered for kids between the ages of 6 months and 18 years who are uninsured or on KanCare. There is no charge, but a parent or guardian must be present to sign a consent form.

Fluoride varnish helps strengthen tooth enamel and prevent cavities, boosting the teeth’s resistance to decay.
