Hunt School of Dental Medicine’s Texas Tech Dental Oral Health Clinic launches 1st Community Clinic Week

Faculty and student providers from the Hunt School of Dental Medicine will offer important dental care services for residents of the 79905 ZIP code during a community clinic sponsored by Marathon Petroleum.

During the clinic, which runs through Friday, Dec. 3, 79905 residents will have the opportunity to receive diagnostic and preventative dental services – including dental exams, X-rays and sealants – at no cost, thanks to a grant from the Marathon Petroleum Foundation. Additionally, students and faculty will provide essential oral health education information for adults and children.

Services will be provided at the Texas Tech Dental Oral Health Clinic with the establishment of the clinic’s Dental Patient Fund from the Marathon Petroleum Foundation. These funds provide access for families in 79905 neighborhoods who might not otherwise have the resources for quality dental care.

Residents interested in making an appointment for the clinic are asked to call 915-215-6700.

The Hunt School of Dental Medicine is the only dental school on the U.S.-Mexico border, and the first in Texas in over 50 years. As part of efforts to improve the accessibility of oral health care in the community, faculty and students provide reduced-cost services in the school’s public dental clinic, the Texas Tech Dental Oral Health Clinic.
