Building Confident Smiles Program Aims to Help Women Achieve Goals

UNC is dedicated to lifting barriers that can stand in the way of achieving self-sufficiency. This past year, UNC joined several community partners, including the Scranton Area Community Foundation, The Institute for Public Policy and Economic Development, and the Scranton Primary Health Care Center, Ed Dulworth Dental Clinic to offer the Building Confident Smiles program, a restorative dental care program for uninsured and underinsured women looking to achieve professional and/or family goals. Those accepted into the program may have goals ranging from reentry into the workforce to increasing self-confidence in order to become a more engaged community or civic member or volunteer.

Building Confident Smiles is made possible through the generosity of Women in Philanthropy supporters, and the support of Scranton Primary Health Care Center and Geisinger.
