In celebration of National Children’s Dental Health Month, Pima Medical Institute hosted “Give Kids a Smile” on Saturday, February 15 at the Houston Campus.
Representatives from Pima Medical Institute, the American Dental Association (ADA) and Greater Houston Dental Society (GHDS) offered free dental services, including exams, x-rays, cleanings, fluoride and sealants for kids ages 5-18.
The event and Katheryn Prather, Dental Hygiene Clinical Instructor, were featured on FOX 26 Houston.
“At Pima Medical Institute, we are known for our hands-on education and commitment to the community,” said Dr. Kimberly Peacher, Dental Hygiene Program Director, Pima Medical Institute. “Events like this not only give our students experience, it provides a needed service to the community we all call home. I couldn’t be prouder.”
The Community Dental Clinic at the Houston campus offers low-cost dental services all year long, and can be a great alternative for those looking for services who might not have insurance coverage, or who are looking for quality care at a more affordable price.
Faculty and staff at Pima Medical Institute in Houston have been providing the best value in allied health career education, supporting the dental, medical and veterinary employment needs of the Greater Houston area since 2009, with the new campus location opening in 2019.
