The annual Children's Dental Health Day was organized by Clark County dentists and held at the Clark College Dental Hygiene clinic. The focus was on helping the children of low-income families. Dozens of Clark County Dental Society members participated, along with members of their teams. Faculty and students of the Dental Hygiene Department at Clark College and dental assisting students were also on hand. By day's end, 264 children had been examined, and 190 restorations had been placed. Preventive services included 442 sealants and over 200 fluoride varnish applications.
