Del Mar College’s (DMC) Dental Hygiene Program is offering some ways to help Coastal Bend residents smile a little brighter and keep their wallets a little less empty. The program is offering fall clinic hours and services at no charge from now until mid-December.

The Dental Hygiene Clinic offers a variety of services including medical history review, blood pressure screening, intra-oral examination, dental preliminary assessment, periodontal assessment, dental hygiene education, oral cancer screening, radiographs (x-rays), fluoride treatments (as needed), selective polishing, conservative periodontal therapy, dental hygiene therapy and dental sealants.

“The Dental Hygiene Clinic provides a win-win opportunity for Coastal Bend residents with available services that also provide our dental hygiene students with hands-on training,” says Eva Sepulveda, Director of the College’s Dental Programs. “ As a community service that’s offered at no cost, our students are preparing for the workforce as dental hygiene professionals while also meeting certain dental needs among patients who make use of the clinic.”
