In an effort to help improve access to proper dental care in the state of Arkansas, a group of local Jacksonville dentists participated in the area's third annual free dental fair at the city's community center.
Jordan Cooper, licensed dentist and founder of the annual fair, said that he and his colleagues treated more than 200 Arkansans who were in dire need of preventative and restorative dental care over the two-day event, according to TodaysTHV.com.
"Arkansas has a shortage of dentists, they don't have a dental school in Arkansas and we do have a lot of uninsured people so it makes it difficult to find access to care," added Cooper.
Due to the fact that there are 17 Arkansas counties with no dental care facilities, the majority of patients who were treated over the weekend may have gone a full year without receiving dental services.
Families who are looking to save money on dental care may want to look into discount dental plans, which can save 10 to 60 percent on most dental procedures.
