About 250 Edgewood Independent School District second-graders received preventive care Feb. 1 from dental students from UT Health San Antonio’s School of Dentistry during a free dental clinic held in conjunction with National Children’s Dental Health Month.
Another 250 Edgewood second-graders are expected to receive the same dental care this month.
This is the 16th year that dental students, supervised by UT Health San Antonio faculty dentists, have provided preventive oral health care for Edgewood ISD students.
The second-graders received dental screenings, fluoride treatments and sealants. These services were provided to the Edgewood students at no cost.
More than 10,000 elementary school students have been served during the 16 years the preventive screenings have been offered.
