Pleasant Grove Baptist Church in Albany has announced it will partner with Project Stretch, a nonprofit organization, to offer area residents with free dental care services at the end of August. A total of 10 dentists, dental assistants and local dental students will volunteer to provide services.
They will provide services including cleanings, extractions and oral exams of both pediatric and adult dental patients, according to The Albany Herald. Patients will qualify for the event if they are residents of Dougherty, Worth, Turner and Tift counties and have no dental insurance.
The number of people who are in need of similar free services is also rising on a national level, as approximately 27 percent of Americans aged 20 to 64 years suffer from untreated dental complications, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In addition to attending free dental care events, low-income families or people who have little or no dental insurance can benefit from discount dental plans. These affordable offerings allow dental patients visit a dentist on a regular basis and receive treatments that may not be offered at these clinics.
