LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 22, 2017) – Available on select dates, screenings include limited x-rays and a limited review for tooth decay. Participants can support UK dental students as they prepare for their licensing exam and get their oral health checked in the process. 

No appointment is necessary. Screenings will be completed on the second floor of the UK College of Dentistry Dental Science Building (see directions and parking information) from 5:30-7 p.m. on the following dates:

·         Tuesday, March 28

·         Tuesday, April 11

In order to qualify for a $5 screening, participants must be age 14 or older.

Participants may be eligible for additional dental services provided at no cost should they meet the needs of the students’ dental licensing exam and be available on either April 21 or April 22. Individuals requiring care in excess of licensing exam requirements will be referred for a full dental screening and treatment, available generally at a reduced fee if completed in the DMD Student Clinic.
