Dental  Continurd from lA  aged by the response we have received from the community," said  Charles Shoulders, a Sarrell representative. "Our packed schedule has already required that we add another dentist to the team after just two weeks of being open."  The dental center will extend its hours to five days a week, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.. Marsh said.  Sarrell officials attribute the heavy response to the need for dental care in the area, she said.  In Alabama, nearly six out of 10 children are eligible for Medicaid but do not use the dental services, mainly because few places accept this type of insurance. Marsh said. In Limestone County, fewer children than the state  average see a dentist, she said.  Currently, the center's local staff includes two dentists, four dental hygienists and a full-time Spanish-speaking staff member, Marsh said.  The non-profit group plans to hire more dentists on a part-time basis as the office continues to grow. Shoulders said.  Sarrell opened its first office in Anniston in 2004 and has i continued to expand throughout the state. Marsh said. It is now the largest dental practice in Alabama, with more than 57,000 patient visits in 2009, she said.  Sarrell has seven other offices in Anniston, Bessemer, Boaz, Enterprise, Heflin, Leesburg and Talladega, and offers optical services in four of the locations, she said.  Shoulders, who is a Limestone County school board member, learned about Sarrell's success in serving the unserved in other cities and brought it to the attention of Superintendent Dr. Barry Carroll last year, he said. Carroll asked Sarrell representatives to make a presentation to school board members in October, at which time they asked to provide free dental screenings in the schools. The board agreed in November to allow the free screenings in the schools. Sarrell did not ask Shoulders until December to serve as a paid representative.  Athens schools screenings  Sarrell will perform dental screenings in Athens City Schools this week through the beginning of March, Marsh said.  A parental consent form is required.  If a screening reveals obvious dental problems, Sarrell sends the parents a form advising them to call their local dentist. If the child doesn't already have a dentist and has Medicaid or ALL-Kids Insurance, parents may schedule an appointment at Sarrell Dental Center in Athens by calling (256) 262-0200. Day-care centers can schedule free screenings by calling Athens Business Manager Kayla Shipman for more information.  Visit  Hie News Courier  online at  enewscourier.com  The News Courier  410 W.
