University Of Alberta Students Provide Free Dental Care For Those Without Insurance

Every Saturday morning during the school year, dentistry and dental hygiene students from the University of Alberta in Edmonton provide cleanings and checkups for free.

It’s part of the Student Health Initiative for the Needs of Edmonton (SHINE) clinic.

Students are watched over by a professional as they are learning new skills, working on hundreds of patients every year. Between January and July, the SHINE clinic did just under $90,000 worth of dental work for people without insurance.
