Boise State will host a free dental clinic from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. March 31 and April 1 in Extra Mile Arena. The dental clinic is primarily for students, faculty and staff, but members of the public also may attend.
Boise State will partner with Extra Mile Arena and Love Heals, a local non-profit organization that hosts clinics around the world. The free clinic will offer dental exams, X-rays, fillings, extractions, sealants, dental cleanings, oral health education and more. Dental professionals include board certified dentists, oral surgeons, hygienists, dental assistants and supervised dental students.
“Many students have limited access to health coverage, especially dental, and when managing basic needs, dental care often drops to the bottom of one’s list of priorities,” said Michelle Cain, Boise State student basic needs case manager. “The university is pleased to provide a program to help individuals access much-needed care, helping to ensure their success.”
Love Heals relies on healthcare professionals who donate their time and talents to care for others. Physicians, nurses, physician assistants, dentists, oral surgeons, hygienists, ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians and healthcare students all come together to meet the needs of patients.
Love Heals clinics are only made possible by the engagement of community volunteers and organizations. Sign up to volunteer or contact Student Basic Needs Case Manager Michelle Cain at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
