Free dental care provided for adults in Pennsylvania and Maryland
Updated: 10/4/2010 3:00:10 PM

Free dental care provided for adults in Pennsylvania and Maryland Approximately 80 adults in Pennsylvania and Maryland will be treated to free dental care as Mission of Mercy (MOM) and United Concordia Dental (CD) are making a joint effort to treat the uninsured.

Individuals who do not have insurance, as well as those who have minimal coverage, will be eligible to receive free fillings and extractions. Patients will also receive tips on how to improve their oral health.

Volunteer dentists and hygienists will be in several towns in Pennsylvania and Maryland over the next four weeks to treat patients. Jerome Blum, director at CD, said that it is important for individuals to receive the proper oral care due to research that shows a "link between oral health and other medical conditions in adults such as premature births, heart disease and stroke, diabetes and more."

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, individuals who do not have insurance often have the poorest oral health.

Individuals who need to take better care of their oral health, but lack insurance, can find affordable, low-cost coverage for themselves and their families through discount dental plans.
