Students in Dental Programs help provide free day of care to area senior citizens

Students, faculty and staff in the Dental Programs teamed up with area agencies on December 14, 2012, to provide a free day of preventative dental care for senior citizen.

Seniors received preventative dental care – X-rays, cleanings and an exam – in GRCC’s dental clinic.  About 70 students in the Dental Program greeted and admitted patients, and worked with dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants on the x-rays, cleanings and exams.
