JOPLIN, Mo. — The Sam's Club in Joplin will offer free oral care tips and health screenings from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 13, at 3536 E. Hammons Blvd.

The screenings are free and available to the public at all Sam's Club locations with a pharmacy.

The free health screenings feature tests valued at up to $100, including:

- Non-invasive oral health questionnaires  

- Dental tablets

- Glucose

- Total cholesterol

- Blood pressure

- Body mass index (BMI)

- Vision

Certified dental hygiene students provided by Colgate and certified technicians from Carmen Ingle & Associates will administer written questionnaires to screening participants about dental habits as well as offer counsel and oral health tips at the special Sam's Club event.  

Free dental tablets contain a harmless colored dye that is attracted to plaque on teeth, revealing areas of the mouth that patients may miss while brushing and flossing.
