Baker College Offers Low-Cost Dental Hygiene Services
April 27, 2017
Appointments for low-cost dental hygiene services are available this spring at Baker College’s Center for Dental Hygiene Education. The care is provided by students in the associate degree dental hygiene program under the supervision of licensed dentists and hygienists. The center is open to all in the community; documentation of financial need is not required. “These dental hygiene services are beneficial to community members and students,” said David Smith, a dentist and dental hygiene program director at Baker College of Clinton Township. “Community members can save hundreds of dollars on treatment, and students gain experience that prepares them for successful careers.”
He said the center’s low-cost services reduce the financial barrier for individuals to get dental hygiene services every six months as generally recommended. The low cost is especially helpful to those with higher risk of dental disease who require more frequent checkups.
