The University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College will offer free dental care to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, March 6.

Registration for the UC Blue Ash College Community Dental Day begins at 8 a.m. in Walters Hall, Room 100 on the UC Blue Ash campus, 9555 Plainfield Rd. The event is open to adults ages 18 and older, and patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. 

This is fifth year that the college's dental hygiene program has hosted this event. The goal is to provide access to care for those who do not have dental insurance or who have never been to a dentist.

To accommodate as many patients as possible, each person will receive one free service during Community Dental Day. They can choose from a filling, extraction, or teeth cleaning. There are some health conditions that will prevent patients from being treated at this event; see the complete list online

Community Dental Day is possible through the generous support of local dentists and dental care professionals, including alumni, students, faculty and staff of the dental hygiene program who volunteer their time. The Dental Care Plus Group is also serving as the presenting sponsor for the fifth consecutive year.
