The University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College will host its Community Dental Day 8 a.m.-2 p.m.,  Friday, March 4, in the Dental Hygiene Clinic, located in Walters Hall on the UC Blue Ash campus (9555 Plainfield Road, Cincinnati, OH 45236).

The event offers free dental care to adults ages 18 years and older. Patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis and should arrive before noon to get registered. The goal of Community Dental Day 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 the event. 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; to see the complete list go to the Dental Hygiene Clinic webpage.

Community Dental Day was founded by UC Blue Ash in 2016. It is organized by leaders of the UC Blue Ash dental hygiene program and made possible through the generous support of event sponsor The Dental Care Plus Group, as well as local dentists and dental care professionals who volunteer their time.
