The dental clinic at Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine will offer adults 18 years old and older a free dental exam, teeth cleaning and x-rays Saturday, February 11, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

No appointment is needed, and walk-ins will be accepted up to noon on a first come, first served basis, according to Scott Grant, president of the Case Dental School's Student Council. The student organization has organized this annual event as part of its community service efforts.

Appointments last between one to two hours, depending upon services needed. Selected patients may be invited to participate in additional free dental care. Other participants will receive $10 off the admitting fee for anyone who wishes to become a dental clinic patient and receive follow-up after the free dental day.

The dental clinic is located on Cornell Road at the Emergency Drive at University Hospital, two blocks south of Euclid Avenue. For information, call 216-368-3570 or 216-368-3819 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays.
