Kirkland, WA – It’s National Children’s Dental Health Month, and the Lake Washington Dental Hygienists’ Society is setting aside a day to reduce cavities for children in our community by placing dental sealants and fluoride treatments at the Lake Washington Institute of Technology Dental Clinic.

On Saturday, February 21st, from 8:30 AM - 1:00 PM, Washington State dental hygienists, dentists, dental assistants and dental hygiene and dental assisting students will offer free dental sealants, dental exams, x-rays, and fluoride varnish to children ages 5 to 15 who would not otherwise be able to receive this cavity-prevention treatment. Sealants are white coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth.  They protect teeth from cavities and are non-toxic.  Placing sealants is painless, can protect a child’s teeth for 6-8 years.

To set up your child’s appointment, call 425-739-8100. When you reach the college answering machine, press 8 and then enter extension 8612. Leave a message if there is no answer and someone will get back to you to schedule an appointment. Spaces are limited.
