ROCKY HILL, Conn. (WTNH) — The Central Connecticut Health District announced Wednesday that they are offering free dental cleanings to people over the age of 60 that live in four Connecticut towns.

If you are over age 60, and are a resident of Berlin, Newington, Rocky Hill, or Wethersfield, you’re eligible to get your teeth cleaned at no cost to you. The clinics will be held February 4th and 5th, as well as March 9th and 10th, at The Lodge at Cold Spring at 50 Cold Spring Road in Rocky Hill.

There is a limit of five patients per day, so reservations are necessary. If you’re interested in receiving a free cleaning, you’re asked to call Lori DiPietro at 860-721-2824.

The health district is also welcoming donations to keep this program going. If you’d like to help with a donation, please contact DiPietro for more information.
