St. Louis Dental Center providing free dental services for SLPS students Saturday


ST. LOUIS –  A.T. Still University-Missouri School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ATSU-MOSDOH) and Affinia Healthcare are coming together for a community health event. They are providing free dental services for St. Louis Public School families Saturday.

SLPS families with pre-kindergarten students and their siblings, who have pre-scheduled appointments, will receive free dental screenings and services at the St. Louis Dental Center.

Organizers say they are trying to ensure young children and their siblings receive the care they need to prevent tooth decay, the most common childhood chronic disease. Because of the pandemic, many students have not been able to receive dental screenings or care through school-based programs.

The St. Louis Dental Center is a clinical education facility with 93 dental chairs. They provide dental care to the St. Louis community by Affinia Healthcare dentists and staff and ATSU-MOSDOH faculty and dental students. 

The event is from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 1 at the St. Louis Dental Center located at 1500 Park Avenue. Appointments are required.

To schedule an appointment, call the SLPS ECE Office at 314-331-6150.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
