ATSU-ASDOH supports Grand Canyon University “Back to School Clothing Drive” with dental services

A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ATSU-ASDOH) participated in a back to school drive at Grand Canyon University for underserved children in the Phoenix area. ATSU-ASDOH provided more than 1,100 children from underserved communities with free dental care at the event, and 4,300 participated in dental education lessons.

ATSU-ASDOH also provided 4,300 “dental goodie bags,” sponsored by Delta Dental. The bags included a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and dental referral sheet.
