In an effort to save money during the recession, many Americans have been cancelling their dentist appointments, so one college in Florida is offering a day of free dental care.
"Project Christmas Smile" is a one-day event that will take place on December 5, according to the TC Palm. The project, which will take place at Indian River State College, is a collaborative effort led by the institution and a number of local dentists. Patients will be able to see dental care professionals from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. for procedures such as fillings and tooth extractions.
An article published by the New York Times in September of 2009 claims that more than 100 million Americans are currently without dental coverage.
Individuals interested in receiving care through Project Christmas Smile are encouraged to arrive at the college as early as possible, as treatment slots are limited, reports the Palm. Although such events can be a good temporary solution for people without coverage, free dental care days are often held on a first-come, first-served basis, meaning many patients might not receive treatment.
