Pacific Offers Free Dental Screenings to Children in February

January  28, 2013

In celebration of National Children's Dental Health Month, free dental screenings are being offered by the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry to Bay Area children (from birth to age 14) throughout February. Screenings will take place at the school's Hutto Patterson Pediatric Dentistry Clinic Monday-Friday, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm. 

Appointments must be made in advance by calling 415.929.6550. All children must have a parent or legal guardian accompany them to the screening.

Each screening visit includes:

  • Short visual exam to identify any trouble spots in gums, teeth and mouth
  • Consultation with parents to answer questions; find out how to prevent oral diseases and get tips on developing good habits for kids
  • Dental goody bag with toothbrush

Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. Pediatric dental faculty partner with dental students, specially trained dental assistants and staff members to provide comprehensive low-cost dental care for children.
