Kent students receive free dental services

As part of National Dental Health Month, Seattle-King County Public Health offered free dental sealants to second-grade students at Meadow Ridge Elementary last week. Fairwood Dental Center is offering a free exam, X-ray, teeth cleaning and fluoride treatment to all children age 14 and younger on Feb. 18.

Seattle-King County Public Health set up an entire three-chair dental office at Meadow Ridge Elementary on Jan. 29-31.

"This was a wonderful opportunity for the many students in our school who do not have access to dental care," said Amelia Nabarrete, school nurse at Meadow Ridge.

Fairwood Dental Center's Free Dental Kids Day is 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Feb. 18.

Interested families can contact the office to schedule a free appointment at 425-271-7725.
