The Ivy Tech Community College Dental Hygiene Clinic opened in 2009 providing preventive services, cleanings, and x-rays to adults and children.

Please note: Your treatment will be provided by a dental hygiene student and supervised by an Ivy Tech faculty member and a licensed attending Dentist. Due to the educational process, your treatment will require more time than if done in a private dental office.
Safe Families for Children
Safe Families for Children is working with Anderson High School to help kids in the gap. Safe Families recruits host families through Christian Churches in order to train and equip families to serve children in need within our community.  Are you interested in opening up your home specifically for the purpose of hosting an older youth or know someone who might be?
