Crowded free dental clinics show the need for better oral care
Updated: 9/21/2010 5:00:14 PM
 

Crowded free dental clinics show the need for better oral care The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 1 in every 3 individuals in the U.S. lack dental insurance. Clinics continue to offer free dental care as the need for better oral health may be increasing.

LivingstonDaily.com reports that recently, in Brighton, Michigan, more than 150 individuals were in line to sign up at the VINA Community Dental Center to receive dental services as it was the biggest turnout of the last two years.

The news source also states that another nearby clinic in Howell was overwhelmed with patients as two dentists were only able to treat 70 of the 350 individuals who attended the event.

At both clinics, hundreds of potential patients lined up outside, but some eventually had to be turned away. Individuals who did receive care were treated with services that included cleanings, root canals and fillings.

Those who lack dental insurance can find low cost, affordable care for themselves and their families through discount dental plans.
