Health Fair at TenderCare Clinic draws crowd despite rain

Despite the dreary weather on April 7th, the 2nd Annual TenderCare Clinic Health Fair turned out well. Over 20 vendors were set up in the high school gym, all passing out health-related materials and informing the community about services and resources in the area. In addition to the TenderCare tables (medical screenings, dental screenings, pharmacy information, insurance information, women’s health, mental health, and preschool), a wide variety of organizations were present to promote healthy lifestyles. Many people were interested in the interactive stations that encouraged them to take a part in their own health: the common allergen screenings by The Allergy, Asthma, and Sinus Center, the rapid HIV testing by the Northeast Health District, and the chiropractic screenings by Franks Chiropractic Life Center. The sponsors of the health fair were also at the event: Oconee Cancer Care (gold), Humana (silver), and St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital (bronze).

TenderCare Clinic aims to host the health fair every spring to bring awareness to the community about the importance of health. Being knowledgeable about the resources available to you is crucial to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. As always, TenderCare Clinic has multiple services and locations to take care of families in the community. All insurances are accepted including Medicare and Medicaid, and discount program is available for eligible patients. You may call TenderCare Clinic at 706-453-1201 to schedule an appointment or learn more about the health fair.

TenderCare Dental continues successful Dental at Preschool days

TenderCare Dental and Dr. Corey Woodard continue to have Dental at Preschool days with children who attend TenderCare Preschool. The program has run for over a year and a half now, serving many children of varying ages in the preschool. On Tuesday, February 26, the dental department once again turned a preschool room into a dentist office just for children, making it fun and entertaining. The TV was playing a video of Elmo brushing his teeth, and dental students from Augusta University were coloring with the children and helping them brush stuffed animals’ teeth.

On this particular day, children less than 2 years old were introduced to the dentist chair! Dr. Woodard and the senior dental students assisted the children in brushing, gently looked at the children’s mouths, and even applied a kid-friendly vanilla cupcake flavored fluoride varnish. The program is designed to keep the children calm in their own environment, and enjoy keeping up with their oral health. For questions or interest in the Dental at Preschool Program, or to schedule an appointment with TenderCare Dental, please call 706-454-5114.
