Mesa Community College's Dental Hygiene program is looking for patients who have not received dental hygiene care in the past three years or longer to receive complimentary oral health screenings.
Treating patients with tough dental issues is part of the program's graduation requirements, and the program is looking for people who suffer from untreated periodontal disease, those who have been told they need "deep scales," or those who have other dental hygiene issues such as puffy and bleeding gums.
The screenings will be 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1-3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 11 at the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Heath, 5855 E. Still Circle, Mesa. If you wish to schedule a complimentary screening, call (480) 248-8195. Patients who meet the criteria will be contacted to set up an appointment. While the screening is free, further treatment at the school will be a reduced cost from a traditional dental office.
