Families or adults looking to save a few extra dollars on health costs have the opportunity to receive free dental care from professionals in the Kansas City area through November 10.
This week, more than 560 dentists and hygienists from Missouri hospitals and clinics volunteered to provide care at a local health clinic. On Wednesday, more than 1,000 patients took advantage of the free service, Fox 4 reports.
The offering has especially appealed to community members who cant afford dental insurance or are unemployed.
Kansas City resident De Barker told the news source, "I'm a software engineer, and I've been doing a lot of technical consulting." He added that it's common for contract workers to be denied benefits until they're "under contract for six months to a year."
The event's organizer Sheri Wood says the clinic expects to serve almost 2,000 area residents.
Although free dental care days can be a good temporary solution for families who don't have dental coverage, such events can't always provide the benefits that visiting the dentist regularly might. This is because free services are often offered on a first-come, first-served basis, meaning many attendees won't receive care.
