The clinic is located on the first floor of the Coffey/McNally Building on Roane State’s Oak Ridge Branch Campus, located at 701 Briarcliff Avenue.

The free procedures include teeth cleaning, all necessary dental X-rays, and a fluoride treatment.

The free cleanings for children are only offered during February and March 2024. Availability is limited due to demand, so parents and caregivers are encouraged to book quickly.
