On March 13th, the Connecticut Mission of Mercy will sponsor a one-day free dental clinic for underprivileged residents who do not have dental insurance.
The program, which is operated by the Connecticut Foundation for Dental Outreach, will provide dental screenings, x-rays, root canals and cleanings to both children and adults on a first-come, first-serve basis, according to ConnecticutPlus.com. More than 1,400 volunteer dentists, oral surgeons and dental assistants will be on hand to help give back to the community.
State Representative Chris Perone has urged all Connecticut residents to take advantage of the once-a-year opportunity to receive free dental care.
"Almost everyone without dental coverage puts off getting treatment until it's too late," said Perone. "This is an opportunity to receive quality care at no cost."
There are no eligibility or income restrictions to visit the clinic, which will be held at the Aetna Building on Industrial Park Road in Middletown.
Families with limited access to complementary dental care may want to invest in a discount dental plan, which can save between 10 and 60 percent on most procedures.
