(July 25, 2013) -- UTSA Student Health Services at the Main Campus will host dental screenings for UTSA students on Mondays in August at the Recreation and Wellness Center.

UT Health Science Center San Antonio Dental School faculty and students will conduct dental screenings at Recreation and Wellness Center Room 1.806, near the Women's Resource Center and Counseling Services, between 1 and 4 p.m. on Aug. 5, 12, 19 and 26.

At the screening, teeth will not be cleaned and cavities will not be filled. The benefits of dental screenings are to prevent and detect infections, tooth decay, periodontal disease, receding gums and oral cancer; provide oral health education and referrals for free or low-cost dental care.

A dental professional will:

  • Examine your mouth, gums and teeth.
  • During the screening, they will look for signs of infection, cavities, periodontal disease, receding gums and oral cancer.
  • If problems are identified, the dental professional will follow up with you to make an appointment for care or will refer you to a dentist in the area.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 210-458-4142.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.

For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.

Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
