  1. Free Dental Screening Clinic Scheduled for May 9th in Attleboro

    A free dental screening clinic for seniors will be held on Saturday, May 9th from 8:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Attleboro Council on Aging. Anyone aged 60 or over from any town is welcome to attend the clinic. Appointments must be arranged in advance by calling the Attleboro Council on Aging at (774) 203-1906.

    At the free screening clinic, dentists from our area have volunteered to examine patients for problems with their teeth, gums, and dentures. Patients can ask dentists questions and discuss their concerns. Participants will also be screened for oral cancers, as well as receive free denture cleaning and labeling. During the screening clinic, participants can also apply and learn more about the Elder Dental Program, which helps low-income seniors to access local dental services provided at reduced fees based on a sliding scale.

    The screening clinic is organized by the Elder Dental Program, a project of Community VNA. Funding for the free screening clinic is provided by the Rotary Club of Attleboro, as part of their initiative to keep older adults free of dental disease. This program is funded in part by a grant from Bristol Elder Services, Inc. through contracts with the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs. The Elder Dental Program also receives funding from United Way of Greater Attleboro/Taunton.
