Blue Bell, PA — Montgomery County Community College’s (MCCC) Dental Hygiene program and the Tierra L. Dobry Foundation will co-sponsor a free Children’s Dental Sealant program on Nov. 17 from 5:30-8:30 p.m.

The sealant program, held at MCCC’s Dental Hygiene Clinic, 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 215-641-6483.

A dental sealant is a clear, preventive coating placed on permanent back teeth in order to prevent dental decay.  During the sealant program, 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.

The Dental Hygiene Clinic at Montgomery County Community College is located in the Science Center at 340 DeKalb Pike in Blue Bell.  Free parking is available in the lot off of Morris Road. For additional information, call 215-641-6483 or visit http://www.mc3.edu online.
