Dentist checks Special Olympics athletes

Dr. Stephen Durham recently traveled to Orlando, Fla., to participate in the Special Olympics State Fall Classic as part of the Special Olympics Healthy Athletes initiative. Durham joined dozens of other medical professionals in the program. Under the Healthy Athletes Special Smiles program, he provided no-cost, non-invasive dental screenings to the athletes participating in the State Fall Classic. These screenings provide athletes with dental hygiene education and nutritional education, as well as a list of dental providers in their home area who are suited to providing ongoing care to special needs patients. Durham Dental is in Beaufort.
