Free medical and dental care clinic comes to Boise State April 27-28

The Dean of Students Office at Boise State will host a free clinic from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 27-28 at ExtraMile Arena. This clinic is primarily for students, faculty and staff, but members of the public may also attend. The Saturday, April 27 clinic day will only be open to the Boise State community.

Boise State will partner with ExtraMile Arena and Love Heals, a local non-profit organization that hosts clinics around the world. The free clinic will offer dental, medical and vision services. Dental services include 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. Free eye exams are also available, and glasses will be mailed. There will also be medical professionals on staff for questions or consultation.

“Many students have limited access to health coverage, especially dental, and when managing basic needs, medical and dental care often drop to the bottom of one’s list of priorities,” said Michelle Cain, manager of student basic needs resources. “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. Those interested in volunteering can visit the volunteer website.
