Make an appointment for annual Sealant Day

YAKIMA – The Yakima Valley Community College Dental Hygiene Program is hosting the 21st annual Dental Sealant Day, Saturday, Feb. 8, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Patients will receive a free visual dental exam, fluoride varnish and, when needed, sealants.

The Weston D. Brown Dental Hygiene Clinic is located on the Yakima Valley Community College Yakima campus at 1015 S. 16th Ave.

A sealant is a safe plastic coating that is painted onto the tooth. The sealant protects the tooth from bacteria that can cause cavities.

Patients age 4 to 21 have until Friday, Feb. 7, to schedule an appointment. Appointments must be scheduled in advance and children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Spanish interpreters are available.

Call 509-574-4917 to schedule an appointment.
