The Northeastern Pennsylvania Health Care Foundation (NPHCF) recently awarded The Wright Center a $90,000 grant over three years to develop a dental navigation program. The project will be executed in collaboration with the Scranton Dental Society, harnessing volunteers to do assessments and connecting patients with dental offices that offer reduced cost care. The project will consist of a series of free, daylong oral healthcare clinics for adults in Lackawanna County who lack health insurance or have issues accessing care.
