VISITING DENTIST


Registered dental hygienist Marie Terokowskie of The School Dentist, Beverly Hills, polishes Houghton Lake Middle School fifth grader Jason Graham's teeth Tuesday. Dr. Melanie Vergeldt said she and her four-person staff travel all year. They were visiting Houghton Lake Monday and Tuesday, with a planned stop at St. Helen Wednesday to see students there. "I'm a mom," she said. "I knew the need was out here." Students sign up in the fall to receive exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants and xrays and are sent home with reports. Major insurance plans are accepted, including Medicaid and MiChild, as well as private insurers.
