Illinois Valley Community College’s Dental Assisting Program is once again offering
dental clinics to IVCC students, staff and the community.
Screening days are Friday, Feb. 2 and 9 from 8 a.m. to noon and patients will receive a
comprehensive exam and cavity-detecting X-rays. Qualifying patients will be scheduled for a
cleaning appointment for a later date.
Free services include dental X-rays, exams, dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Basic
dental cleanings will be available for $30 and IVCC students and staff may qualify for a free
dental cleaning.
Dental Assisting Program coordinator Heather Seghi said, “Our students are excited to
start their clinics to hone their skills. Patients should have had a routine cleaning within the last
year to ensure they qualify for one in our clinic, but all interested parties may still be examined
to determine whether they qualify.
“We have outside resources for those who are unable to have the cleaning completed in
our clinic, and we are very happy to help in any way we can to ensure they receive the best care,”
she added.
