Dental Hygiene Clinic a win-win

Meteorological spring starts Sunday, and the sunny days of the season are sure to make many a person smile. So why not schedule a dental cleaning to really show off those pearly whites?

The Dental Hygiene Clinic at Pennsylvania College of Technology offers a valuable service to the community with low-cost preventive care. Those who struggle with their costs or who do not have a dentist should avail themselves of this clinic.

Good dental health has been linked to a person’s overall health, and good dental hygiene helps to prevent gum disease and to keep teeth as a person gets older.

While providing this service, the clinic also gives dental hygiene students the opportunity to put their skills to work, under the watchful eye of licensed dentists. Each year, the clinic provides care to more than 2,000 people of all ages. Appointments may be scheduled by calling 570-327-4500.

This sounds like a win-win to us. It benefits students at the local college, and it contributes to the health of community residents.
