P.E.I. Dental Hygienists Offering Free Teeth-Cleaning

Some dental hygienists on P.E.I. will offer a free teeth-cleaning clinic on April 8.

The one-day clinic is for those who can’t afford the approximately $120 needed to get their teeth cleaned.

The Holland College Dental Assisting program in Charlottetown is offering its space free, while the dental hygienists are giving up their time to work that Saturday.

April MacDougall, a dental hygienist in Cornwall and an event organizer, said she often sees people come into the dentist office with a toothache who can’t afford to get their teeth cleaned.
