Free Dental Health Care at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry


Each year, the University of Michigan School of Dentistry Student Council sponsors Dental Health Day, offering free dental screenings to Ann Arbor and surrounding communities. Because of the increasing cost of dental care, lack of information about dental services and changes in insurance coverage, many people refrain from seeking dental evaluation and service until they are experiencing pain, or find themselves in and emergency situation. Dental Health Day was designed to allow more people, who would otherwise refrain from seeking dental treatment, to receive basic dental health care, free of charge, reducing risks of emergencies.

This year, the 2009 Dental Health Day will be held on November 14, at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, 1011 N. University in Ann Arbor. Individuals regardless of income can participate in the program between 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM. An appointment is not necessary. However, patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. Treatments will not be provided. Registration will start at 8:30 and will continue until 12noon or until 150 patients have been evaluated. All participants will receive FREE oral exams, FREE oral cancer
screenings, FREE dental x-rays and FREE oral hygiene instruction. Please enter the School of Dentistry at the North University Avenue entrance. Parking will be available at the Fletcher Street parking structure.
