The Rio Salado Dental Clinic hosted two wellness clinics for kids in June and July and provided free dental services to nearly 200 children!

The services included exams, X-rays, cleaning and Fluoride treatments provided by Rio Salado’s dental hygiene students.

“A big goal for us is to offer services to the community, while also providing a learning experience for our students,” said Clinical Coordinator Nikki Shipp.

The Arizona Dental Foundation, which served as one the event sponsors reported that Rio Salado provided $23,223 worth of treatment at the June clinic! 

A big thank you to Rio Salado dental hygiene students, staff and volunteers for all their hard work and dedication in making the clinics a resounding success!

We would also like to thank the Arizona Dental Foundation, Delta Dental of Arizona, Xlear, CBS 5 AZ - KPHO and all of our community partners for helping us get the word out about this event, for donating services and volunteering their time!
