WIHD is proud to announce it was awarded a $376,826 grant from the New York State Health Care Transformation Program to replace a van which brings dental services directly to people with developmental disabilities.
WIHD’s Dental Van regularly visits community services agencies throughout the Hudson Valley Region and provides appointments on-site which decreases not only patient transportation costs but also costs associated with avoidable poorer health outcomes. In addition to the Dental Van, WIHD’s Dental Center on the Valhalla campus offers a complete range of specialized dental services and ongoing care for people with disabilities. Services are delivered in a state-of-the-art dental suite at WIHD. With four operatories, the WIHD Dental Department is able to accommodate the growing needs of individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). Westchester Medical Center is also available to meet the needs of WIHD patients that require general anesthesia. Few hospitals in the state provide this much-needed service.
