Free dental cleaning

   If you have not had your teeth cleaned for at least two years and are between 18 and 55 years old, you may be eligible for a free dental cleaning, exam, and X-rays.

   Students in the Shoreline Community College Dental Hygiene Program are looking for patients now to take part in spring state board examinations. For a state board screening exam, call (206) 546-4711. Participants will be assisting students in becoming licensed hygienists in Washington.

   In addition, the clinic regularly offers low-cost services. Fees for adult cleanings, including complimentary exams, range from $40 to $60, with discounts for seniors. DSHS medical coupons are accepted.

   Children's cleanings, including complimentary exams, cost $30 and include fluoride treatments. Other services offered include small fillings and repairs of fractured teeth. All work is supervised by licensed instructors and dentists.
