Some practices are continuing to supply care to those that do not receive oral health services on a regular basis. In Lansing Michigan, the CareFree Dental Clinic provided patients with dental work that totalled nearly $48,000 in one day, the Lansing State Journal reports.
According to the news source, the clinic is open year-round and provided this care to patients who do not have insurance. The individuals who received the dental services were only asked to pay what they can for the total cost of their bill, as 95 percent of these individuals received a 75 percent discount.
Individuals treated were mostly in need of emergency services, as the majority suffered from oral-related pain.
The news source reports that six volunteer dentists were able to help 110 individuals. Some of the patients that were seen also suffered from other health issues, caused by poor oral hygiene, that eventually rotted their teeth.
Poor dental health can lead to gum disease or cavities, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Individuals that need to find affordable ways to receive care for themselves and their families can find low-cost plans through discount dental plans.
