San Juan College hosts Give Kids A Smile Day free dental clinic
FARMINGTON — About 33 patients were scheduled for appointments for free dental care during San Juan College's national Give Kids A Smile Day.
The event is sponsored by American Dental Association and locally by the Northwest District Dental Society.
Families arrived at the dental hygiene classrooms in the Health and Human Performance Center on the main San Juan College campus in Farmington this morning for their appointments.
It aims to provide free dental care to children from 5 to 12-years-old around San Juan County.
The event has provided upwards of $50,000 in service in recent years.
San Juan College's dental hygiene students performed teeth cleanings, x-rays, and fluoride treatments.
Area dentists provided treatments for any extractions and fillings.
