BETHEL — The Bethel Family Health Center announces the start of a dental hygiene services program for children age 20 or younger, beginning Sept. 11.

Sharon Smith-Bouchard, independent practice dental hygienist, will provide dental hygiene services to patients 20 and younger, twice a month. Dental hygiene services include cleanings, sealants, preventive care, fluoride varnish treatments, temporary protective restoration, and referrals.

All insurances will be accepted, and financial assistance is available for people without health insurance. The program will not replace existing relationships that patients have with area dentists, rather, it will offer an option to those who find it hard to access dental care because of cost or distance.

People wishing to make an appointment should call 207-824-2193. Bethel Family Health Center is at 32 Railroad St. For more information, visit:
