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 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.
