Kentucky organization that provides free oral care notes the need for more volunteers

Kentucky organization that provides free oral care note the need for more volunteers Although there are organizations that hold events to provide free dental care to poverty-stricken families, there is still a need for dental volunteers.

For example, mission teams from Forest Park Covenant Church have held free dental clinics at the Kentucky Mountain Mission/Youth Haven Bible Camp in Kentucky for the last five years, totaling for more than 1,000 patient office visits, according to The Evangelical Covenant Church's website.

However, Mark Gordon, organizer of the event, told the news source that there is always a "need of dentists, dental assistant and hygienists." He added that there is also a need for technical experts to work dental equipment.

The next free clinic is set to be held for three days next spring in which cleanings, fillings and tooth replacements are administered, according to the website. Gordon and his team expect the lines to be long, as people in the past have waited from morning until late at night to receive the dental services.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, dental care is vital for a person's overall health because poor oral hygiene has been linked to chronic conditions including diabetes and heart disease.

Luckily, individuals can receive affordable, low-cost oral care for themselves and their families without having to wait in line.
