Rio Salado Dental Hygiene Clinic Success!

Rio Salado Dental Hygiene students, instructors and support staff volunteered their time and expertise to provide comprehensive dental hygiene care to children and young adults ages 17 and younger--free of charge!

A big thanks to the staff and students who gave their time and to the American Dental Association and the Arizona Dental Foundation for their support--we served over 100 children!

Services included exams, X-rays, cleaning, fluoride varnish, educational tips on staying healthy, and a wellness goodie bag to take home. Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease in children, but is almost entirely preventable.

The Rio Salado Dental Clinic provides quality preventive dental hygiene services at discounted rates for the public all year long. Fees range from $25-75 depending on the age of the patient. For more information, call 480-377-4100 or visit
