OKLAHOMA – For the ninth year, Dr. John Phillips, 29th Street Dental Care, will be hosting Dentistry from the Heart, a free dental clinic on Friday, January 31.

This is also the fifth year that 12 dental assisting students from Platt College Central will be joining the dentist in providing services.

Under the supervision of Dental Coordinator, Regina Sutton, students will assist with cleaning, extractions and fillings from 5:30 in the morning until the last patient leaves, usually around 5:30 pm.

“Community volunteer projects are as beneficial to the students as it is to the community patients receiving the care, “ explained Ms. Sutton. “ It gives students the opportunity to perform the type of professional services  they will be expected to provide in their externship, a great confidence builder.”

29th Street Dental Care is located at  2900 West Grand Avenue, Chickasha. The phone number is 405- 222-0222.

Platt College Central is located at 309 Ann Arbor, Oklahoma City. The phone number is 405-946-7799.
