Dental Days is an annual event offered to those who are on a limited budget and have no dental insurance.  Community dentistsdental hygienists, dental assistants, and administrative staff, along with UAA Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting students, faculty and staff, volunteer their time and skills to provide services for this event. Dental services include exams, x-rays, cleanings, fillings, sealants, and more.  These services are provided to the patients at no cost due to the generosity of volunteers and donations within the community.

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, our Dental Days 2020 event has been postponed. We do not have a date set at the moment, but we will notify everyone once we have more information. Thank you.

We would like to say thank you to all of our supporters for allowing us to give back to our community by making this clinic possible.  A special thank you to Henry Schein Dental, Colgate, Hayes Handpiece Repair, Alaska Dental Society, Alaska Dental Hygienists' Association, and University of Alaska Anchorage.
