Senior dental hygiene major Mackenzie Roll performs a check-up on veteran Michah Bahr. Bahr served in the U.S. Navy from 2004-2012 and gets his dental service for free from the USI Dental Hygiene Clinic. He said the program is “pretty cool” and he likes to help the dental students get real life experience when he comes in for his cleaning.
