A Chicago dentist will offer a chance for anyone to get dental care free of charge in an effort to improve the dental health of people who may not be able to afford dental insurance.
Dr Theodore Siegel will provide the care on a first come, first service basis to address the significant amount of people who may be not getting the proper dental care they need.
"My hope that the truly needy in the community who fear dental bills more than they fear dental treatment will be first in line to take advantage of this opportunity," Siegel said.
The dentist's office doors will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the holiday and said he hopes to see as many people as possible. Siegel has also urged uninsured parents to bring their children in for dental care, stating "the best time to develop good dental habits is while a child is still young."
According to the American Dental Association, children should receive their first dental appointment by their first birthday. Doing so can help the child avoid tooth decay, the single most common chronic childhood disease.
