SAID Pleased with Turnout at Gathering of Nations Powwow 2017

Members provide hundreds of dental screenings to Native American Youth

 

The Society of American Indian Dentists (SAID) president, Dr. Darlene Sorrell, completed yet another successful effort to provide hundreds of dental screenings at The Gathering of Nations (GON) Powwow.

The two-day event, held at the Wise Pies Arena (The Pit), offered the free evaluations to children between one-year and twelve-years of age on April 28th and 29th, 2017.

Dr. Sorrell announced that over 300 evaluations were completed during the collaborative event between the SAID, Colgate and The Gathering of Nations (GON) Powwow.

The SAID members are committed to ensuring the success of this event each year at the Gathering Of Nations Powwow. The organization will evaluate the success of the collaboration during their upcoming annual meeting to be held this June in Cincinnati, OH.
