Press Release: University of Detroit Mercy Dental receives a dental health grant for underserved pregnant women from Delta Dental Foundation #motownmom

Delta Dental Foundation grant to Detroit Mercy Dental extends successful dental health program for underserved pregnant women

 

DETROIT — A statewide community outreach pilot program for pregnant women in high-risk populations and run by University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry will continue and expand, thanks to a $630,000 grant from the Delta Dental Foundation (DDF).

Michigan Initiative for Maternal and Infant Oral Health (MIMOH), which started in 2017 with a nearly million-dollar grant from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, integrates a dental checkup into the mother’s scheduled obstetrician appointment, making it more convenient for her to address oral health needs during pregnancy.

 

“To improve the oral health outcomes for high-risk infants and young children we need to start looking at ways we can improve the perinatal oral health of the mother,” said Divesh Byrappagari, director of dental public health and outreach at Detroit Mercy Dental. Infants are also at higher risk of developing tooth decay if mothers have poor oral hygiene during and after pregnancy, he added.

 

MIMOH is modeled after a program Grace Health in Battle Creek has run for four years. Pilot sites were found through a partnership with the Michigan Primary Care Association (MPCA). In addition to Grace Health, they are Covenant Community Care in Detroit, Great Lakes Bay Health Center in Bay City, Ingham Community Health Center in Lansing, InterCare Community Health Network in Benton Harbor, Muskegon Family Care in Muskegon and Upper Great Lakes Family Health Center in Hancock. Through the grant, the sites were given funding to hire a dental hygienist who provided preventive dental care, oral health instructions and referrals to dentists for long-term care in a dental chair in their obstetrician’s office.

 

“This program provides critical access to dental services for many people who otherwise wouldn’t obtain it,” said Jen Anderson, MPCA spokesperson. “For many Medicaid beneficiaries, community health centers are the only places they can go to receive dental care. By connecting pregnant patients to a hygienist during their prenatal visit, it’s easier to help them — and their children — form the habits that promote good oral and overall health.”

 

At the end of the first year of this project, three of the sites Ingham Community, Grace Health, and InterCare — became self-sufficient and will continue the project without grant funding. The new funding from DDF and the initial MDHHS grant will help clinics currently in the project continue.

 

As the primary investigator on the project, Byrappagari oversees the program and collects outcomes data for research purposes. He says preliminary data shows bacterial loads were lower in the pregnant women who received dental care and dental hygiene instruction.

In this second year of the program, Detroit Mercy Dental faculty and students, led by Byrappagari will collect more data, including whether patients actually followed up by going to dentists to whom they were referred and the impact on early childhood preventable infectious diseases.

 

“This is a very positive outcome,” Byrappagari said.

 

“This program will fill a major need, allowing expectant mothers to receive dental care during one of the most critical life stages,” said Delta Dental Foundation Executive Director Holli Seabury. “Proper oral hygiene is important during pregnancy because hormonal changes can increase the risk of developing gum disease which, in turn, can affect the health of the developing baby. By promoting prenatal oral health education and dental appointments, we can help pregnant women avoid an adverse birth outcome and help them to have a healthy, full-term baby.”

PRESS RELEASE: DR. Phil CBS Production Features Transition 1.2.3. Inc., of Detroit, MI @transition123in #motownmom

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Tyrice Kirkland
Direct: 313.415.3673
 
DR. Phil CBS Production Features Transition 1.2.3. Inc., of Detroit, MI
We are thrilled to share with you that our organization Transition 1.2.3. Inc., will be presented on the Dr. Phil Show Friday, May 10, 2019 at 5:00 pm EST on CBS Channel 50 in Detroit and it will be showing nationally on all CBS stations.   A viewing party will be held locally on Friday, May 10, 2019 at 4:00 pm located at The Ford Patio, 18490 W. Ford Road, Detroit, Michigan. Dr. Phil was honored to hear about the transitional housing facility in Detroit which the CEO, Chacrice Miles has been using to shelter for women seeking a safe haven from homelessness or domestic violence.
 
About Dr. Phil
Dr. Phil McGraw, perhaps the most well-known mental health professionals in the world, is the host of the #1 daytime talk show Dr. Phil. Now in its 17th season, this trailblazing and award-winning show continues to provide the most comprehensive forum on mental health issues in the history of television. Dr. Phil McGraw has a unique ability to take complicated and technical information and make it accessible and understandable to the general public.
 
About Chacrice Miles
Chacrice, founder and CEO of Transition 1.2.3 was a beautician, during which time, she volunteered with other organizations helping in the fight against Domestic Violence. Like Dr. Phil, Chacrice as a survivor for over twenty years understands the effect of domestic violence and the impact it has on mental health. This allowed her to see that women had a greater need beyond her beautification skills.  Since 2004, Ms. Miles has dedicated her life to this vision. Her mission is to be a catalyst in the lives of disenfranchised women to enable them to move to a plateau of success in every aspect of their lives: spiritually, physically, emotionally and financially.  For over twelve years, Ms. Miles, has been funding this non-profit organization utilizing personal finances along with small monetary and in-kind donations received from fundraisers and grants.
 
About Transition 1.2.3 Inc.
Transition 1.2.3 Inc., provides housing for homeless women 18 years and older. The transitional homes are newly remodeled, clean and completely furnished facilities providing water, electricity, gas and basic essentials. Transition 1.2.3 also offers BED/DET (Building Economic Development of Detroit) Housing Program which eventually allows the women within the transitional facilities to have access to permanent affordable housing opportunities. 
Domestic violence is the leading cause of homeless women (National Law Center on Homeless & Poverty).  1 in 3 women have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner (The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV). So as Detroit continues to rebuild and grow there will be an increased need for safe havens for women and their children. Transition 1.2.3 recognizes this potential and plans to build an all-inclusive transitional housing facility that will accommodate 20 families. 
 
Transition 1.2.3, Inc. has also been honored by and featured in the Investigative Discovery – ID Channel and Glamour Magazine in October 2016 for the “Everyday Hero” award in New York.  Chacrice Miles was also highlighted on the “Today’s Show”, by Tamron Hall.  Ms. Miles/Transition 123, has a full-page featured in the August 2017 issue of PEOPLE Magazine (Audrey Hepburn on cover)  as Investigation Discovery and PEOPLE raises awareness of domestic violence for the “Inspire A Difference” campaign.  Also, Transition featured a stage play, “No Place to Go” with the Perri Sisters in 2018 for awareness on domestic violence and received the Spirit of Detroit award from Manpower Mentoring.
