Canceled: Smile for Sealants Dental Clinic Offered for Youthville

by admin on February 25, 2011

Canceled.  The first annual  Smile for Sealants Dental Clinic for those in Wichita’s Youthville Agency scheduled for Saturday, February 26, has been canceled.  Please contact Youthville for more information.

The following announcement has been canceled.

Wichita Area Technical College joined Delta Dental in presenting the 1st Annual  Smile for Sealants Dental Clinic for those in Wichita’s Youthville Agency. Free dental sealants are to be provided for all eligible children ages 6 – 14, as well as bitewing x-rays, a dental exam from a dentist, oral hygiene instructions, and gift bags for participating children. There will also be free blood pressure screenings for adults.

The dental exam is a short painless procedure that takes less than 20 minutes. If no decay is detected during the exam, the participating child will then receive dental sealants from a Dentist or Dental Hygienist.

A dental sealant is a preventive dental treatment consisting of applying a lightly filled resin with fluoride release material to one or more biting surfaces of back teeth, for the intended purpose of preventing dental caries (cavities).

Those eligible through Youthville may register and make an appointment with Youthville. The clinic is open for 70 appointments and will be held from 8:00 am – 2:00 pm, at WATC’s Southside Center Dental Clinic, located at 4501 E. 47th Street South, Wichita.  Please call 316-677-1500 with any questions.

This event has been canceled. Please contact Youthville for more information.
