It was a busy week for students in the Baltimore City Community College (BCCC) Dental Hygiene Program as the annual event where free preventative dental care is provided to area seniors.

Each October, as part of National Dental Hygiene Month, BCCC holds a Senior Week community outreach event to seniors 62 and over who stop by the Dental Hygiene Clinic for free cleanings, oral cancer exams and x-rays. The event is an important public health project and often plays a role in early diagnosis of more serious conditions.

To visit or make an appointment with the Dental Hygiene Clinic, call Grace Simmons at 410-462-7712.
