The Lead Peer Educator Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s, Title III Project.
Lead Peer Educators (LPEs) partnered with Medical Teams International to provide emergency dental treatment to the students of Bellevue College. The college secured a grant for the Mobile Dental Clinic and a pilot of the clinic was offered this month. As a testament to the clinic’s popularity, all of the appointment slots filled up quickly. The mobile dental van provided services for students that exhibit urgent dental needs such as dental pain, swelling, or possible decay (e.g., discolored teeth), who need fillings or tooth extraction.
