UAMS Dental Hygiene Program Offers Free Sealant Clinic for Children on Feb. 26

By Ben Boulden

The clinic is for children 5-17 years old. A free dental examination is a part of each one-hour sealant appointment. Dental sealants are not fillings, but they help to prevent tooth decay.

To make an appointment, call Rosa Elizondo at 870-279-6044.

The Department of Dental Hygiene is part of the UAMS College of Health Professions, which is the most comprehensive allied health college in Arkansas with 16 programs.
