STCC offers free treatment on Community Dental Day

Hampden County

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Springfield residents who lack proper dental care received complimentary treatment Saturday from Springfield Technical Community College.

The fourth Community Dental Day provided services like fillings, extractions, sealants and addressing urgent issues.

Saturday’s care was free of charge, and patients were encouraged to return to STCC in the future for low-cost follow-up care.

“I came here for some fillings, I don’t have a lot of money so this is a good place for me to come,” Paul Buckowski of Chicopee told 22News. “Good people here, they did a good job. I loved it. I’ll definitely come back.”

One of the dentists who supervises the students working at Community Dental Day said they look forward to it every year.
