The School of Health Sciences’ dental hygiene clinic recently held a program benefiting 14 fifth- and sixth-graders from the Muncy School District. Services – provided free by Penn College students in conjunction with Dr. Mary Bennardi, the district’s dentist – included dental cleanings, sealants, fluoride treatment and examinations.
