Students offer uninsured community free dental care
Students in the Dental Assistant program at Clackamas Community College will offer free community dental screenings from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, June 7, at the Harmony Community Campus.
CCC will partner with Oregon Health & Science University dental school and Northwest Family Services to provide the service.
College dental-assisting students will work with OHSU dental students to provide exams and oral hygiene instructions.
The CCC program prepares 24 students each year for entry-level positions as chair-side dental assistants. Program graduates have gone on to work in private dental practices, large clinics, or continued with their education to become dental hygienists and dentists.
