Del Mar College Students Providing Inexpensive Dental Treatments

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

We all know that going to the dentist is expensive, but there is an alternative for folks who want to save some money.

Most dental cleaning and X-rays can be expensive; especially for those families with no insurance or limited income. Del Mar College is offering these services for a low cost of $15 for adults and $10 for kids 11 and under.

People can get dental screenings, cleaning treatments or X-rays.

You first need to make an appointment to see if you qualify. If you qualify, then all of the procedures will be performed by the students in the dental hygiene program at Del Mar College, with supervision of the instructors.

"This is how they practice what we are teaching them, to make sure that they are learning what they need to learn, and we grade them," Dental Instructor Misty Whorton said. "So every step that they are doing, we grade them. This is how they graduate."

For more information on how you can make an appointment, call 361-698-2854. Each cleaning appointment is approximately three hours. You have until Dec. 5 to make an appointment.
