UFV Certified Dental Assistant students offer low cost preventative services at annual spring clinic

Do you need a dental X-Ray? Is it time for fluoride treatment or polishing? Don’t have extended medical coverage? Take part in UFV’s low cost spring dental clinic on the Chilliwack campus.

Certified Dental Assistant students provide high quality, professional, preventive care at low cost.  UFV’s large, modern clinic is equipped with the most current equipment and technology.

Open annually in May, the public clinic offers affordable preventive services to children and young adults. Care is provided by Certified Dental Assistant students under the supervision of qualified faculty who are trained and certified in the field. Preventive care appointments are 2 to 2.5 hours in length and are generally held Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays in May.

Services offered include X-rays, fluoride application, sealants, selective polishing of teeth, and oral hygiene instruction.

The fee for all services is 10 dollars, and the only catch is patients need to be screened by a dentist first; prescribed treatment must be completed within 60 days of initial dentist screening. The completed Screening Form is then brought to your UFV  appointment. Clients must also be calculus tartar free (received scaling by a dentist or dental hygienist) prior to appointments at UFV.

For more information, or if you wish to become a client, please leave a message including your name and contact information with the UFV Dental Clinic at 604-795-2829.

As a teaching clinic, students or faculty may require a few days to collect and return messages.

The UFV Dental Clinic is located at Chilliwack campus in Building A, room 2204.

Screening forms can be printed from the UFV CDA website to bring to your dentist, and forms are also available at the Health Sciences Reception desk on the second floor of UFV Chilliwack campus.
