A national nonprofit organization launched a program focused on bringing free dental care to residents of Florida who may not have been able to afford a dental checkup or had access to dental insurance.
Dentistry From the Heart reportedly assisted at least 200 people last Friday, some of whom waited in line despite a "bone-chilling wind," the Pensacola News Journal reports. Helping the organization in its cause were 24 dental professionals, which included dentists, orthodontists and hygienists.
Dr Noel Spurlock, one of the dentists who volunteered during the event, told the news provider many Americans may need services such as the ones provided by Dentistry From the Heart.
"With the economy, there are people who need these free services," Spurlock said. "But they have no means to afford them because they may have lost a job or don't have dental insurance."
Families who are searching for ways to save money on dental care may want to consider discount dental plans. These plans, an alternative to dental insurance, offer discounts of 10 to 60 percent on most dental procedures.
