The Huron County General Health District (HCGHD) is partnering with North Central Ohio Dental Society to provide free dental screenings for children up to age 18.

The screenings will be offered from noon to 4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1 at the Health District's office, 180 Milan Ave.

Free dental screenings will be provided to children by dentists and hygienists from the North Central Ohio Dental Society. The screenings are intended to serve children who do not have access to a dentist. The screening will include pre-cancer screening, soft and hard tissue inspection and oral hygiene instruction on brushing and flossing. Appointments are required.

Call the Health District at (419) 668-1652 ext. 252, or toll free (888) 694-2443 ext. 252 to schedule an appointment.



It's wonderful that these dentists and hygienists volunteer to do this for the children. What a nice story!


It is a great service. The only thing I wish would happen is get more people to actually show up. Many will sign up and never show.

Wish there was program like this for adults
It would sure help.


KK, they do.....they are called Medicaid clinics.


Just which clinics take uninsured adults, according to you? Never heard of Medicaid clinics.
