Children who live in the Mississippi Delta can now experience state-of-the-art mobile dentistry provided by Dr. LaMonica Davis Taylor, a pediatric dentist with a private practice called Smiles on Broadway Dental Care located in the city of Jackson. Dr. Taylor has been providing dental services to children in the Delta since 2015. Currently, students in Boyle, Shelby, Mound Bayou, Cleveland, and Shaw are being seen by Dr. Taylor.

She and her team at Smiles on Broadway Dental Care travel to schools where they provide preventive and emergency dental care to children. All of the schools are in a health care shortage area.

Prior to purchasing the mobile clinic, Dr. Taylor and her team would carry portable equipment to each school. The mobile clinic will allow them to treat more students in a safe environment. The students have enjoyed having Dr. Taylor and her team visit their school. Many of the parents have followed through with the recommendations and have taken their children to local dentist where more comprehensive treatment can be performed.

The goal of the clinic is to serve the most vulnerable children in that area. There is a great need. Many of the students have either never been to a dentist or have been for emergency treatment only, causing heightened anxiety and long-term fear of the dentist. “My mission is to provide quality oral health to children who would otherwise not see a dentist,” said Dr. Taylor. “It is fulfilling when our annual visits result in fewer referrals for restorative care. It means that our mission is being accomplished.”

The clinic features a waiting area, two dental chairs, and digital x-rays, which lower the patient’s risk of being exposed to radiation. All COVID protocols required and recommended by the Mississippi Board of Dental Examiners are followed.

Our staff treats an average of 75-100 students per school. “We provide screenings, exams, cleanings, radiographs, prophylaxis, and fluoride treatments. Emergency extractions are performed if needed. In addition to that, we provide oral health products (toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, and mouth rinse) to every student we see. These are things that we take for granted and it amazes us that many of the children do not have access to get these products or services,” said Dr. Taylor.

Dr. Taylor is a 2003 graduate of John F. Kennedy High School. She attended Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia, the University of Mississippi Medical Center’s School of Dentistry, and Bronx Lebanon Hospital in Bronx, New York for her general practice and pediatric dental residencies. Dr. Taylor also received her board certification through the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

She currently practices full-time at her private practice, Smiles on Broadway Dental Care, in Jackson and has hospital privileges at Merit Health Madison, Merit Health Central, Merit Health Rankin, and North Sunflower Medical Center. She specializes in providing comprehensive dental care to children ages 1-21 and special needs adults.

Dr. Taylor is the youngest owner of a mobile dental facility in the country.

Help Save Black Men From Prostate Cancer

The Prostate Health Education Network (PHEN) is launching its "Prostate Cancer Disparity Rally" to address the growing prostate cancer crisis in Black America caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the dramatic increase in new prostate cancer cases.

Prostate cancer is the leading cause of cancer and the second leading cause of cancer deaths for Black men in the U.S. The disease also has the largest racial disparity for any type of cancer for men or women. The American Cancer Society recently released estimates that new cases of prostate cancer will increase by 30% in 2021.

This is more than ten times the increase for any other major cancer including lung, breast, and colorectal. "We are facing an unprecedented prostate cancer crisis in this country and Black men will be hit the hardest," says Thomas Farrington, PHEN Founder and President. “Our Disparity Rally will raise prostate cancer awareness throughout Black America, and provide educational resources and tools to help alleviate disparities in early detection, treatments, and clinical trials.”

The Prostate Cancer Disparity Rally will kick-off in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia and expand nationwide throughout 2021. The Rally will include an awareness campaign with members of the U. S. Congressional Black Caucus, doctors, clergy, patients, and other leaders raising their voices through public service announcements that will be part of an integrated media outreach effort.
