Free dental services available to children on March 2


Free dental care – including screenings, sealants, fluoride varnish treatment and education – is available to children ages 7 to 15 on Saturday, March 2, in the Pennsylvania College of Technology Dental Hygiene Clinic.

The event is co-sponsored by the Pennsylvania Dental Hygienists’ Association as part of its Sealant Saturday initiative. Sealant Saturday events are held across the state.

The Penn College event will take place from 9 a.m. to noon. The college’s Dental Hygiene Clinic is on the second floor in the west wing of the Advanced Technology & Health Sciences Center.

Pennsylvania College of Technology dental hygiene students Abigail S. Way, ’17, of Williamsport, and Rebekah L. Caretti, ’18, of Weedville, provide free preventive dental services to a child during the 2017 Sealant Saturday event at Pennsylvania College of Technology. Volunteer dentists, dental hygienists and dental hygiene students will again provide free services in the Penn College Dental Hygiene Clinic during Sealant Saturday on March 2.

Appointments are required. They can be made by calling 570-320-8007 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday to Friday.

The clinic will be staffed by local dentists, dental hygienists and Penn College dental hygiene students, all volunteering for the day.

Sealants are clear, protective plastic coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to help prevent tooth decay. They will be applied as needed and will not be placed where tooth decay is present.

Penn College has been a Sealant Saturday host since 2003. More than 1,000 children have received free dental care in the Penn College Dental Hygiene Clinic as part of the initiative.
