Free oral health screenings available to public on Dental Health Day Feb. 18

School of Dentistry students and faculty will team up Feb. 18 to offer free oral health screenings to the public.

Area residents are invited to receive the free screenings between 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Dental School, 1011 N. University Ave. No appointment is necessary. Patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. All individuals five and older will be able to receive free x-rays, oral cancer screenings, tooth decay examinations, and instructions on proper oral health care. Treatments will not be provided. "If anyone needs follow-up care, they can always arrange that with us here at the dental school or with their family dentist if they need to," says third-year dental student Ben Wickstra, who is leading the effort.

Patients attending Dental Health Day can park for free in the Patient Parking Area upper level at the Fletcher Street Parking Garage next to the School of Dentistry. When they arrive at the gate, patients must press the green button for the gate to rise. Although they will receive a parking ticket as the gate rises, parking is free that day.

For more information about Dental Health Day, call (734) 763-6933 or toll-free (888) 707-2500.
