Dental exams, X-rays, gum treatments, teeth cleaning, fluoride treatments to be provided at no charge

St. Louis, MO (Vocus) November 17, 2009 -- As unemployment climbs and families and individuals are left without health care coverage, receiving free dental hygiene care will come as a welcome relief to many in the St. Louis area. On November 23, Missouri College is opening a new dental hygiene clinic that offers its services at no charge. Dental hygiene students, supervised by dentists on staff, will provide patients with a range of dental services including X-rays, gum treatments, teeth cleaning and fluoride treatments for adults and children.

“Our dental hygiene students have been preparing for this work since they began their studies last March,” said Hubert Benitez, DDS, director of the dental hygiene program at Missouri College. “They have followed a rigorous program and have been building their skills preparing themselves to begin serving the public. We are encouraging people to make appointments now for themselves and their children.”

Benitez said the students will be closely supervised by instructors who are dentists and dental hygienists. Just as with a regular dental appointment, the dental hygiene student will perform an examination, and prepare and implement a treatment plan, while instructors examine, review and oversee the dental hygiene student’s work.

The clinic will offer the following free services:
