Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Releases Systematic Report on Sarrell Dental

Sarrell Dental holds great promise as a cost-effective model for meeting the needs of this very vulnerable population. This program demonstrates the success and utility of recruiting and utilizing local, culturally competent staff to work with the program. The familiarity with local conditions and sensitivity to local concerns, along with significant relationship-building and outreach, has allowed the program to achieve successful collaborations with the State university system, elementary schools, Head Starts, and families, as well as civic groups and elected officials.
