GREENVILLE, Pitt County — Fourth-year students at the East Carolina University School of Dental Medicine are hosting free dental screenings and x-rays.
The screenings are used to detect oral cancer, tissue softness and dental imaging. Appointments last about a hour.
Anyone who is 18 years or older is eligible to participate.
Students need about 150 patients and ask you to bring photo identification and a list of medications when you come.
School of Dental Medicine Vice Dean Margaret Wilson said it's a win-win for both the students and patients in need of treatment.
"Tens of thousands of patients that we already see at the School of Dental Medicine are doing very much to help us advance our mission of preparing the graduates for practicing in North Carolina, as well as receiving much needed dental care at a reduced rate under careful supervision of highly qualified faculty," said Wilson.
Appointments can be made Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the dental school in Greenville.
You can sign up now until the end of February. If you are selected for a cleaning or filling treatment, you must be available all day either Mar. 1 or Mar. 2.
