130 Students, Faculty and Professionals Volunteer at Sask Polytech Health and Wellness Day

130 dentists, dental therapists, denturists, dental assistants, dental hygienists, nurses and Saskatchewan Polytechnic students, faculty and staff volunteers, came together at the Sask Polytech dental clinic at Regina Campus on March 26 to provide easy access to quality health care. Volunteers and students completed $43,216 worth of dentistry work.

“Health and Wellness Day, formally Dental Day, was created in 2012 as a response to the barriers many people face within our community in accessing oral care,” says Robin McKay Ganshorn, clinical coordinator and instructor for Sask Polytech’s dental programs. “Health and Wellness Day is a day of giving back to the community while also providing a hands-on learning experience for our Health Sciences and Nursing students.”
