Marga Ebel Children’s Dental Program

Dental issues have been shown to have a clear connection with overall health.  The Marga Ebel Children’s Dental Program was formed in 2012 to help identify and address dental concerns in students of USD 410 schools.  The program is funded by the Marga Ebel Health Fund endowment held by the Hillsboro Community Foundation.

USD 410 provides dental screenings for students which identifies children needing professional attention.  Financial assistance is then made available through the Children’s Dental Program for qualifying families that may need help in covering the cost of dental services.

The program was developed by a committee of education and health care providers in the community, and is believed to be the first program of its kind among public schools in Kansas.
