Wake Tech Students – Do You Know about Our Dental Hygiene Program?

Do you need dental cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants, or  X-rays?   Often students delay hygiene visits until serious problems develop due to costs.  

Wake Tech has a Dental Hygiene Clinic at the Perry Health Sciences Campus  that offers these services to active Wake Tech students for FREE! … and at a reduced price for others. 

Read this flyer for more information and visit the Dental Clinic Patient Information page for campus directions and treatment fees. 

The Nest – Food Pantry for Wake Tech Students

Wake Tech students are juggling many things as they pursue their studies. Some are stretching their money trying to cover many expenses and at times their budget may come up short for food. We would like to help students in getting essential supplies.  The Nest is a food pantry at the Beltline Center for students in real need of food items
