The Mount Wachusett Community College dental hygiene students are providing free dental care to individuals and families at the Dental Hygiene Clinic located at the Community Health Connections Family Health Center in Fitchburg (Burbank Hill).

Patients treated in the newly renovated, state-of-the-art clinic can receive comprehensive oral assessment, dental cleaning, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, deep cleaning, and dental x-rays. Services are free for those without dental insurance, individuals with insurance are billed for hygiene procedures, and any costs not covered by the insurance are free.

“Dental health services are a basic need that too many people cannot afford,” states Jenna Guzman, President of the Dental Hygiene Club. “Access to dental services not only benefits physical health, but it also gives patients an increased sense of self-esteem.”

Appointments are available during the spring semester Mondays through Fridays between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm, excluding holidays and semester breaks. Interested individuals and families can contact the clinic at 978-630-9413 or visit to make an appointment.
