Montgomery County Community College’s Dental Hygiene program is partnering with the Pottstown Area Health and Wellness Foundation and Community Health and Dental Care to offer a free Children’s Dental Sealant program on March 28 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
The sealant program, held at Community Health and Dental Care, 11 Robinson St., Suite 100, Pottstown, is a community outreach effort during which free oral examinations and sealant placement will be provided for children ages 6-14. Space is limited, and examinations are by appointment only on a first-come, first-served basis. Appointments can be made by calling 610-326-7405.
A dental sealant is a clear, preventive coating placed on permanent back teeth in order to prevent dental decay. During the sealant programs, preventive services will be performed by licensed dental hygienists in consultation with licensed dentists. Auxiliary support services will be provided by the College’s dental hygiene students.
For additional information, call 610-326-7405.
