A toothless woman from New Britain, Connecticut, has said that a new local medical facility that accepts patients without dental insurance has finally put a smile on her face.
Brenda Lee Brown, who is employed at the Connecticut Veterinary Center in Berlin, told the Harford Courant, "I work with the public. I smile and they see I have no teeth, so I just laugh with them, because what else can you do?"
However, because of the two full-time dentists who run the New Brite Plaza Family Dental, Brown expects to have new teeth in a matter of weeks.
The dental center is unique in that it serves up to 350 patients per month, an unusually high number, and has treated almost 2,000 individuals in the 6 months since it opened, according to the news source.
"We opened our doors and the public embraced us," office manager Justin Marti told the Courant.
Although the clinic aims to treat every patient that makes an appointment, the center is booked through February.
Because facilities like New Brite are scarce, and many dentists elect to practice in small towns with private insurance, Americans in some underserved communities have turned to discount dental plans.
