What Services are Provided?
We are here to give everyone possible that little extra help in dealing with day to day issues by hopefully relieving some underlying dental issues. We can help any adult, age 19 and over. No one is turned away for non-medical reasons. We will not be able to fix every dental problem for everyone presented to us. Our Goal is to provide treatment to alleviate immediate need that may include:
- Preventative dentistry and cleaning
- Nutritional counseling
- Restorative fillings
- This is a free clinic that serves clients on a first come, first served basis. This clinic will open their doors at 6:00 am and will close the line off when the clinic is full for the day. (This usually occurs between 7:30am and 8:30am) Clients will be seated inside the school building in the "upper gym" where they will begin their registration process.
There will be no accommodations for children at this event. Unfortunately, to accommodate children, insurance coverage for an event like this becomes prohibitive and greatly restricts our ability to serve the large number of people that need these services. Please be understanding with this policy. If you have children waiting with you in the line to enter, you will be explained this policy and you will be unable to enter the building. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
You will receive a brief medical screening and a dental evaluation. If you have a condition that would require an approval from your physician to be treated please bring that authorization with you.
- In some cases patients will present with numerous dental problems. The treating dentist will make a determination as to the procedures that will be addressed that day.
Why Should I Attend?
"Health of the oral cavity is tied very closely to a person's general health."
A person’s dental problems can have a wide-ranging impact on day to day life as well. Mentally, poor oral health can affect one’s self confidence, thus affecting every aspect of their social life. Physically, the pain from dental infection and decay can have a devastating effect on one’s daily functions, whether it is working, caring for loved ones, or just daily tasks.
It’s hard enough to go through the day without having to worry about low self-esteem, pain, or infection. If we can help anyone by improving their oral health, then we have had a positive impact on that person that will hopefully have a positive impact on their life.
