WORCESTER, MA— October 31, 2023 — Quinsigamond Community College’s Dental Hygiene Clinic is continuing to offer free preventative dental services to anyone aged 55 or older, as well as active military members and veterans. The Clinic, located at QCC’s West Boylston Street campus, offers dental assessments, teeth cleaning, x-rays, and fluoride treatments.

“QCC’s Dental Hygiene Clinic provides thorough preventative services for the public and students at QCC. Our comprehensive services include a full assessment, necessary x-rays, a cleaning, a deep periodontal cleaning if necessary and a fluoride treatment,” said Dental Clinic Operations and Facilities Manager Sheryl Ficorilli.

For over 20 years, QCC has been offering low-cost dental care to area seniors. In 2022, a partnership with the Central Massachusetts Agency on Aging resulted in funding to completely cover the cost for patients over the age of 55. The program also covers the cost of gowns and masks for the dental students.

“Our services are offered at a deep discount to benefit patients who have no dental insurance and who appreciate a teaching and learning environment where they can get a very comprehensive preventative dental service,” Ficorilli added.

Patients are treated on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., or 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. To make an appointment or for more information, call 508-854-4306 or visit
