Dental Hygiene Clinic Gives Back to the Community

The Eastern International College (EIC) Dental Hygiene Clinic in Jersey City facility offers free dental screenings to our local community on Thursdays from 9am to 5pm. The screenings include extra oral and intra oral cancer screening and periodontal evaluation. The benefit of this screening is to identify any oral lesions, evaluate periodontal condition, and inform patients of the services we offer. The Jersey City Campus is located at 684 Newark Avenue, Jersey City, NJ 07306. Please call 201-630-2080 to schedule your free dental screening.

EIC’s Dental Hygiene Department has been involved in several community projects including the participation in the American Dental Association’s Give Kids a Smile, February 2015. Preventative services were provided to more than 100 children in the Jersey City area.

In addition to the Give Kids a Smile program , every Friday the Dental Hygiene (DH) Department Clinic rotates to the Newark Boys and Girls Club where the clinic’s students provide free preventive oral health care services to the children of Newark, NJ.

From April 2014 to May 2015, the clinic’s students went to local shelters, nursing homes, assisted living homes and charter schools, and provided free educational presentations. These various facilities received free dental hygiene products as well as instructions on oral health.

The DH Clinic also, has recently established a relationship with Golden Door Charter School in Jersey City, NJ and will provide free preventive dental services to the children in third grade. They will be seen in our facility every 6 months and have free access to preventive dental care including radiographs, comprehensive dental exam, oral cancer screening, prophylaxis, fluoride treatment and sealants. This program provides free preventive services in one year.
