Fall is shaping up to be a busy time at Georgian’s Oral Health Clinic. The Dental Assistant Intraoral Clinic, which is open to the public, offers services every Thursday evening from mid-September through early November between 4 and 8 p.m. This is in addition to regular Dental Hygiene clinics, which run three days per week during the fall semester.
“The Oral Health Clinic already sees a large volume of clients, so we’ve added appointments this fall to help fill growing demand,” says Betty Rainey, Customer Service Representative for the clinic. “Dental services offered in our Dental Assistant Intraoral Clinic are a low-cost alternative for preventative oral health care.”
The Oral Health Clinic meets local demand for dental services and many people in Simcoe County and Muskoka have already benefitted from the affordable care provided by Georgian Dental Assisting students.
Services include assessments, polishing, fluoride application, dental sealants and oral health education. The clinic also offers free sportsguards to those who qualify. Students are supervised by dental hygienists and dental assistants.
Cost is $10 for adults and children over the age of 10. For teaching purposes, a four-hour time commitment is required for each appointment.
The Oral Health Clinic is located on the first floor of the Sadlon Centre for Health, Wellness and Sciences at the Barrie Campus, M141. For more information, visit GeorgianCollege.ca/clinics [Oral Health], email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 705.722.5114.
