Ferris Dental Hygiene Students Provide Free Dental Cleaning for Kids
First-year Dental Hygiene students from Ferris State University provided free dental cleaning to 50 children recently as part of community service activities for the Student American Dental Hygiene Association, reports the Big Rapids Pioneer. SADHA participates in fundraising activities throughout the school year to provide free services benefiting area children. Other activities this student organization participates in include providing cleaning and screening services during the annual "Focus on Fours" event and the Children’s Dental Health Fair. Area dentists, hygienists and the College of Allied Health Sciences at Ferris help support these students’ efforts.
