Dental assisting and dental hygiene students on Mohave Community College's Henry Campus-Bullhead City were busy Feb. 7 when the dental programs held their annual Give Kids a Smile Day. MCC dental program director Tracy Gift reported that 69 children from all over Mohave County took advantage of the free cleanings, screenings, fluoride treatments and oral hygiene instructions, and 165 sealants were placed on those children's teeth. Above, MCC dental hygiene student Barb Messer examines Josh Thorn's mouth during the event. The dental hygiene students run a clinic Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday for community members. Interested individuals should call (928) 704-7788 for an appointment. For information about the dental hygiene program, contact Gift at (928) 704-7793.
