Let's talk teeth at school clinic Training ground: Clinical educator Agnes Smith in the new six-chair dental clinic at Henderson Intermediate. Half of the clinic is an AUT training facility which is open-plan so the tutor can monitor all three chairs. By CATHERINE HEALY Top-notch dental treatment for children in Henderson has arrived with the opening of a new six-chair clinic at Hender- son Intermediate School. It will treat 2500 students from nearby schools as well as 1200 local preschoolers. I remember people coming to me and begging me to say yes to this idea. When you look at the old clinic compared to the new one you can see how fantastic this is, principal Bruce Dale says. Associate health minister Peter Dunne opened the clinic last week. He said it had been a long time coming, with plan- ning beginning at least two years ago. This means children will not have to travel to Greenlane Hospital for com- plex dental procedures, they ll be able to have them right here in Henderson. Waitemata District Health Board s dental health man- ager Belinda Tafua is the driv- ing force behind setting up 11 new fixed-site dental clinics and 15 mobile units in Waite- mata by the end of 2012. It s busy but so exciting. It s so satisfying to see the end result, particularly when you see the conditions some of the clinicians were working in before. Mr Dunne said this is part of a broader government strat- egy to improve dental care for young New Zealanders. We ve contributed nearly $116 million in capital and another $30m each year in operational funding to our DHBs to provide better oral health for our children and teenagers. Three of the six chairs at Henderson Intermediate s clinic form an AUT training facility where second and third-year oral health stu- dents will work under super- vision. Clinical educator Agnes Smith will be based there and is impressed with the quality of the facilities, which are open-plan to give teachers a good view over the whole area. They ve been specifically designed for training. You can have one clinical educator keeping an eye on all three chairs. When parents give consent to their child s dental treat- ment they will also be asked if they consent to their child being treated by a supervised AUT student.
