Dental care can be difficult to come by in areas that have been hard hit by natural disasters. For people living in these areas, free clinics that provide dental care can be an important way for them to care for their teeth and receive emergency services.
The Iowa Dental Association recently announced that it would hold a free clinic in Cedar Rapids, which was hit by extensive flooding two years ago.
Richard Hettinger, chairman of the event, told Radio Iowa that many people were unable to visit a dentist following the flooding and dental health in the area suffered. He said that initiatives like this were needed to help people who are still trying to recover after the devastating flooding.
"The main thing that seems to happen at these events is that everybody smiles," he told the news source. "The patients are smiling because they are being taken care of and the people providing the care are smiling because they get to do what they love for people who truly need it."
In addition to free clinics like this, there are also many discount dental plans available for patients who cannot afford dental insurance.
