Important news for Maine residents without dental care

Important news for Maine residents without dental care People living in the state of Maine and who don't have dental care may want to know that a group of dentists in the Portland area wants to help.

The recession has been tough for some families in Maine and unfortunately, not everyone in the state has dental coverage. However, on November 6, a group of dentists in the Portland area will be providing care for free, according to one of Maine's ABC-affiliated TV stations.

"With this type of setting we either want to get the patient out of pain, maybe fix that one tooth that was bothering them, give them a nice smile and make them feel better about themselves," said Dr Barry Saltz to ABC about the event, which the group is calling Dentists Who Care For ME.

The dentists who will be giving free care are located in Falmouth, Gorham, Portland, Scarborough, South Portland and Buxton, says the station. The visits are first come, first serve, so calling to make an appointment is unnecessary.

According to the Economist, nearly 50 percent of Americans don't have dental coverage. While free dental events such as Dentists Who Care For ME can help, they are an inadequate alternative to routine dental care.
