The Columbian published "Camas dentist spearheads program on dealing with dental trauma"

September 17, 2018 CCDS President Dr. Ron Hsu is featured in the article  "Camas dentist spearheads program on dealing with dental trauma" today in The Columbian.  The Save-A-Tooth program provides kits of materials and instructions for school nurses and others for use when a child has a tooth knocked out or suffers other oral injuries.  The kits are sponsored by a grant from Clark County Dental Society.  Dr Hsu began distributing the kits and educating school nurses to use them in January.  He hopes to cover our community, then continue with efforts for our State, possibly a national effort on the way.  

Clark County Dental Society is the local "component society" for dentists who are members of The American Dental Association and the Washington State Dental Association.  We have about 200 members, and are dedicated to our role as "The Leading Oral Health Advocate for Clark County".
