Turner House Receives National Grant to Support Oral Health Care for Underserved Children
August 13, 2017
Thank you to Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children: The Foundation of The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry for awarding a 2017-2018 Access to Care grant for $20,000 to Turner House Children’s Clinic. Turner House is one of 10 organizations awarded this year’s grant, supporting dentist-led care to underserved children.
HSHC and Turner House believe that "Every child deserves a Dental Home" – a place to receive consistent, compassionate dental care.
"Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children is proud to support Turner House and the work they do to provide Dental Homes for children from families that cannot affor dental care, " said HSHC President Dr. Ned Savide. "For these children, the opportunity to receive consistent, compassionate dental care can open the door to a lifetime of good dental health."
HSHC is supported entirely through charitable contributions from pediatric dentists, oral health companies, the AAPD, and organizations with interests in advancing oral health. For more information, visit www.healthysmileshealthychildren.org

Darrell Loo, mixologist and Head Bartender at The Julep Cocktail Club, constructed signature cocktails and Ryan Rama poured tastings of Tequila Ocho. Wine, beer and spirits were graciously supplied by Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits. Andrea Thomas Ramsey and Stacey Homuth co-chaired the June 4 event.

Turner House toasted our supporters at a recent social event at Prairiebrooke Gallery in Overland Park, Kansas. Thank you Prairiebrooke for donating the space and for the wonderful raffle prize of a gift card won by Sonja Ambur. Turner House donors Maria and Joseph Ibarra also won two tickets to Kicks 4 Kids KC.
Kicks 4 Kids KC, our annual fundraising event, will take place at Three Points Rooftop Lounge in downtown Kansas City, MO on Thursday, October 6th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Proceeds will support the cost of high quality pediatric primary care provided to low-income underserved and uninsured children in our community.
Late in December 2015, President Obama signed legislation that includes a permanent extension of the IRA charitable rollover provision. Under recent law, you can move up to $100,000 from your IRA to qualified charities such as Turner House Children’s Clinic, without having to pay income tax on the donated amount.
Turner House Children’s Clinic is excited to announce that it has received renewal recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH)
–the highest level of recognition given to medical practices. Turner House has received this recognition for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term, participative relationships.
