Free dental clinics offered
WSUs dental hygiene department will provide free dental sealants for 200 children in Wichita at its clinic Sept. 9 and 23.
The department is partnering with the Center for Health and Wellness to notify parents in the WSU neighborhood about the project, which is paid for by the United Methodist Health Ministries Fund.
Dental health professionals, WSU dental hygiene faculty and students will volunteer at the two dental sealant clinics.
The sealants, for children ages 7-14, are painted on permanent molars, providing a protective coating against decay. The sealants are not placed over teeth with fillings or cavities. Exams and oral hygiene instructions are also provided.
For more information or appointments, call 978-3603.
