BATTLE GROUND — The four dental hygiene bays at Battle Ground HealthCare have been crowded for the past five Tuesdays, filled with instructors and students from the Clark College dental hygiene program.

In five sessions, 25 students helped provide free teeth cleanings for 80 patients.

“It’s really cool to be able to help people who can’t afford dental care,” said Ellie Chapman, who graduates from the program in June.
