In an effort to serve families without dental insurance, the Salvation Army will soon open a new Dental Center in Carnegie Pennsylvania to help families in need.
The center will offer emergency service for pain relief, as well as basic preventative dental health care. Workers at the center will also lead efforts to raise awareness of the importance of dental care in the community.
Dr. Bartley Morrow of the University of Pittsburg School of Dental Medicine will oversee the operation of the clinic, and local dentists will volunteer their time to provide dental services.
Salvation Army representatives said all the work it took to get the project on its feet will pay off once the doors open, and dentists start giving quality care to the underprivileged.
"This project took a lot of determination and effort, but it is well worth the wait," said Major Robert Reel, The Salvation Army's Western Pennsylvania Divisional Commander. "Our staff is anxious to serve."
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention says that 22.9 percent of children between the ages of 6 and 19 have some form of untreated dental decay.
