The Dental Hygiene program in the School of Health Professions at CCBC with the Maryland Dental Hygienists’ Association will sponsor Sealant Saturday on Febuary 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Dental Arts Building (Building D) at CCBC Dundalk, 7200 Sollers Point Road. The snow date is Saturday, Feb. 16.
    The annual community outreach event provides free dental examinations and clear, colorless, protective coatings on permanent molars to children ages 6 to 17, who are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. The treatment prevents tooth decay. Appointments typically last from 45 minutes to an hour.
    Registration for appointment times is required. To register or for more information, call Patrice Gernhardt at 443-840-3495. Callers must provide a daytime phone number to confirm appointments.
