The college’s dental hygiene program partnered with the Pennsylvania Dental Hygienists’ Association and local dentists and hygienists, who volunteered their efforts, to provide free dental services to 32 children during “Sealant Saturday” on March 2. Their work included placing 184 dental sealants, equaling about $6,000 worth of free services, during this community outreach event.
