The Flint Hills Community Health Center is set to receive an award for their dental clinic next month.
The Health Center's dental services will receive the Centers of Excellence Award, during the National Primary Oral Health Conference in Orlando, Fla. Aug. 19.
CEO Phillip Davis was a recent Morning Show guest, saying he will receive the award in person from DentaQuest, a national non-profit dedicated to improving oral health. Davis says this whole thing started a few years ago.
A dental consultant visited the Health Center, interviewed staff and gave recommendations on how to be a more efficient service. Davis says they have in fact been seeing those efficiencies, and it's paid off with this award.
In related news, the Health Center will officially be dropping "Lyon County Health Department" from their name effective Aug. 1.
