There will be free dental care for underserved children in the community. Services will be provided by the DACC Dental Program faculty and students, as well as the NMSU Pre-dental Society, local dentists and hygienists.

Free dental exams, radiographs, dental cleanings, sealants, fluoride treatments, and oral health education will be provided in the dental clinic on the Central Campus adjacent to NMSU at 3400 South Espina, Building DAMA, room 80. The clinic will take place next Saturday February 13th, from 9 am – 3 pm.

Dental health is not just for cosmetic reasons, researchers have found evidence of plaque and tooth decay leading to diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and premature, low-weight births according to a report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.

If one knows of a child or children in the community who may benefit from these services, please have their family make an appointment by calling 575-528-7019. The clinic is for children ages 2 – 17, by appointment only and must include the consent of a parent or guardian.

February is National Children’s Dental Health Care Month and the DACC Dental Programs look forward to participating in this annual event to highlight the month. Earlier, Las Cruces Mayor Ken Miyagishima declared February “Children’s Oral Health Care” in the City of Las Cruces to recognize the importance of dental health.
