Continuing Education

They learned about advances in periodontal health and treatments. A class they both enjoyed was about oral health and its effects on the body as a whole. As always, feel free to ask them any questions you may have about your oral health.  
Research Belton Foundation Dental Screenings
Dr. McNamara screening 3rd graders
Kevin McNamara, D.D.S. and Rachel Crawfored, R.D.H. volunteered through the Research Belton Foundation to perform dental screenings on approximately one hundred 3rd grade students at Scott Elementary School in Belton, MO on February 27th, 2012.  Rachel educated children on home care and nutrition while Dr. McNamara examined their teeth; other volunteers applied a fluoride varnish to those with parental consent.
This service is performed annually in coordination with the State of Missouri to help identify oral health problems early on and direct those children with urgent needs toward dental care. Dr. McNamara and Rachel enjoyed meeting all the students and listening to their comments about their teeth!!

Topics included occlusion, cosmetic dentistry, implant dentistry and periodontal health. Dr. McNamara enjoyed the conference and came back with great new ideas to continue providing our patients with the best dental experience possible!
