Managed care organization Health Net has donated $10,000 to the Community Asset and Resource Enterprise (CARE) Partnership in Mesa, AZ, to buy equipment for a new dental clinic that provides oral care to local families.
The grant will help supply a new dental clinic for the East Valley community resources center, according to the organization.
"Dental care is a critical component of healthcare that can have medical consequences if not addressed," said Patricia Clarey, state health programs officer for Health Net. "This grant is intended to help CARE Partnership complete its dental clinic and provide dental care to families in the East Valley."
"We are thankful to Health Net for this donation," said Bev Tittle-Baker, president and CEO of CARE Partnership. "We have been working on the dental clinic since 2005 and are thrilled to be able to provide dental care as part of our medical services to the community."
