Del Mar Dental Assisting Program Offers Cheap Cleanings, X-Rays

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

With the high number of diabetes cases being reported here in Nueces County, periodic dental checkups could give you an early alert to future problems.

As of this week and through most of April, Del Mar College West's dental assisting program is offering teeth cleaning at bargain prices, and free teeth x-rays to anyone 18 years of age or older.

"X-rays are really vital for dentists to know what's going on in the mouth and it's expensive," Dental Assisting Instructor Jeri Sotomayor said. "It's kind of pricey and if you have any issues, $5 will get you a full mouth x-ray and point you in the right direction."

Free x-rays will run on Thursdays and Fridays through April 19. The x-ray is free, but patients must pay a $5 fee that covers the cost of gloves and barriers used on patients.

Teeth cleanings are $10 dollars.

If you are interested, make an appointment by calling 361-698-2584.
