Montgomery County Community College will be offering a free dental sealant program on Saturday, March 29 at Community Health and Dental Care, 11 Robinson St., Pottstown. The program is made possible by a grant received from the Pottstown Area Health and Wellness Foundation.
Children, ages six through 14 years of age, are eligible to participate in the free sealant program. In addition to sealants, children will receive a dental screening and examination, instructions on how to take care of their teeth, fluoride varnish and a toothbrush. The goal of the program is to help prevent tooth decay or cavities and provide children with access to preventive dental care. All services will be provided by licensed dental hygienists and dentists.
To make an appointment to participate in the sealant program, contact Community Health and Dental Care at 610-326-9460. Appointments are available between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
