Children ages 7-12 can still be signed up for free dental services on January 20 at Harcum College.

Families must call ahead for an appointment by contacting the Cohen Dental Center at 610-526-6113. Appointments are being accepted for 9 am and 1 pm until all slots are full. The College will be open on January 20 with a normal schedule.

The program coincides with the Martin Luther King Day of Service and will be held at the Cohen Dental Center on Harcum’s Bryn Mawr campus.

2014 marks the tenth year of the free program, in which registered dental hygienists, area dentists, and Harcum dental hygiene students provide free dental hygiene services to children who have pre-registered. Co-sponsored by the Pennsylvania Dental Hygienists’ Association, Sealant Monday aims to prevent future tooth decay and cavities in children, as well as aid in overall oral health. The tips and guidance provided help children, families, and the community learn the value of oral care in their overall health and wellness.
