Four members of the Hispanic Student Dental Association — Anale Dovalina, Nina Pham, Angela Wan and Kimberly Paz — took part in the Mount Canaan Missionary Baptist Church Health Fair on April 5.  The four are first-year dental hygiene students at The University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston.

The students staffed an information table where visitors could get instructions on proper oral hygiene and pick up free Oral-B toothbrushes and toothpaste. Participants could also visit other booths to get blood glucose tests, blood pressure readings, glaucoma screenings and mammograms. Immunizations and blood-donation units were also at hand.
