MCC Dental Hygiene Program Seeks Patients

Posted on September 6, 2013 by Sally Mesarosh

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. Requirements of the students’ clinical education call for challenging cases. The program is seeking people who have been diagnosed with periodontal disease and have never been treated as well as people suffering other conditions such as puffy and bleeding gums.

MAKE AN APPOINTMENT

The students will conduct complimentary oral-health screenings from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday Sept. 21 at the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health, 5855 E. Still Circle, Mesa. To register: 480-248-8195.

PROCEDURE

Students will screen patients to determine the oral-health conditions of each individual. Participants must agree to a full set of x-rays. They may receive a copy of their x-rays for $20. Although the screening is complementary, patients selected for the program will be charged for the customized oral health care services provided.

THE CLINIC

MCC's dental hygiene clinic offers a full range of services utilizing the latest technology at fees lower than most private practices. Students work under the supervision of licensed dental hygienists and supervising dentists.
