The college's dental hygiene students at work

POTTSTOWN PA – Reservations are being accepted now – on a first-come, first-served basis – for children between the ages of 6 and 14 to participate in a free dental sealant clinic scheduled for Nov. 19 (Saturday) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Dental Hygiene Clinic of Montgomery County Community College, Science Center Rm. 211, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell PA.

A dental sealant is a clear, preventive coating placed on permanent back teeth to prevent 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.

Space is limited and examinations are by appointment only, the college announced. For information and appointments, call 215-641-6483.

The sealant program is funded by a grant from the North Penn Community Health Foundation.
