To determine if prospective volunteers qualify to participate as patients they must have a dental screening which will be offered free of cost from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday (Feb. 23), according to a University statement.
The screening will take place at the Dental Center, found on the third floor of the University's Patient Care Center, 795 E. Second St.
Fourth year students of the University's College of Dental Medicine need patients that they can provide dental care to as part of the Western Regional Board Dental Licensing Examinations they will take from March 22 through March 24, the statement said.
Those who qualify to be patients for the licensing exams may have X-rays taken, fillings and cleanings completed for free, the statement said.
Prospective patients must be available during the licensing examination dates which may be scheduled after undergoing the screening and being assigned to a student.
Those who qualify to be patients may also be asked to have an additional evaluation between the time of the screening and the licensing examination, the statement said.
People missing multiple teeth will not qualify to participate in the licensing examinations but are invited to contact the Dental Center to discuss comprehensive dental care opportunities at reduced costs in the student clinics.
