A new agreement between the Nebraska Omaha Tribe and the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s (UNMC) Dental College will offer services to the Tribe. Pediatric dental residents and dental assistants will provide care for more than 70 children on the Tribe’s Reservation in Macy, NE.  It’s the first in a series of dental clinics to be opened. The agreement with UNMC will increase awareness of oral health and improve overall dental health of these children. The services are being provided to the Tribe with the help of two 5-year grants from the National Institutes of Health – totaling $3.5 million.
