Children's Day at UAA

Children’s Day is a day our UAA dental students can give back to the community by providing free preventative dental care for youth without dental insurance, or whose parents are on a limited budget. To qualify, children must be between the ages of 3 and 17. Dental services include exams, x-rays, cleanings, fluoride and sealants. Services are performed by dental programs students, under the supervision of a licensed dentist and several licensed hygienists and assistants. Appointment duration may be 2 to 3 hours to complete care.

Note: A child is considered anyone under 18 years of age. Children must be supervised at all times by a parent or guardian. Unsupervised and/or unruly children will not be permitted in the dental program area. Legally, we cannot treat minors without a parent/guardian signature on the treatment plan and a parent present on the premises while their child is being treated.
