Free Dental Cleanings at CCP

Posted by Community College of Philadelphia on September 13, 2022

The College’s Dental Clinic has been cleaning, examining, and sealing teeth—free of charge—for more than 30 years. What started as a free hygiene and educational service for community members needing dental health care has become an essential part of the city’s health care infrastructure. The 16-chair clinic, funded by the College, also serves as a teaching and training facility for Dental Hygiene students. Students treat approximately 1,000 patients each year, many referred by the city’s District Health Centers. Students who work in the clinic grasp the impact and importance of the clinic in the communities they help serve. This is an important lesson in a society where the cost of health care is ever rising as people are living longer, among other issues.

The Dental Clinic is located on the Main Campus at 1700 Spring Garden Street. Hours, by appointment, vary during the week. Call 215-751-8625 for more information.
