CCC Offering Day of Free Dental Cleanings, Screenings for Local Kids
Camden County College’s dental hygiene and dental assisting students and staff will provide free cleanings and other dental care along with dental education services to area children aged 12 and younger for “Give Kids a Smile!” Day is February 2, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, and “Give Kids A Smile!” Day is the perfect way to focus on the needs of children. Also known as National Children’s Dental Access Day, this public health project aims to provide a day of preventive dental care and education to youngsters who would otherwise not have access to such services.
Camden County College is one of more than 80 facilities throughout the state that will be participating in this project in association with the New Jersey Dental Association. All services delivered on-campus that day will be overseen by Dr. Catherine Boos, who is a licensed dentist and the director of the College’s dental programs.
“Give Kids A Smile!” Day will be conducted in CCC’s Dental Hygiene Clinic. This facility is located on the first floor of the Halpern Science Building on the college’s Blackwood Campus on College Drive in Gloucester Township.
Services will be provided by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, call (856) 227-7200, ext. 4631. To access the forms that are needed to participate, visit the New Jersey Dental Association Web site at www.njda.org/gkas.
