This is the second year Dr. Hanson and his staff have performed dental screenings there, as part of National Children’s Dental Health Month. (CHP) Providing health screenings for the second year, Dr. David Hanson re turned to King Nursing and Rehabilitation Community Feb. 25.

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, he said, and he was recognizing “children of all ages.”

Providing a service to the community, he took his staff, Anne Leszczynski, Denise Bates, Brenda Rounds, Anita Foust, Joanne Smith and Missy Hendershott, to King’s and saw more than 35 residents free of charge.

Dr. Hanson said he looks for dental problems that may occur and that the residents cannot always make it out to a dentist for screenings. His staff also cleaned residents’ dentures.

Tom Sandera, 88, who had been bothered by a tooth where it broke off, said he had been wanting to see the dentist, but it is difficult to get to the office.
