A total of 12 dentists who are members of the Dental Advisory Committee and many licensed volunteers will help to provide free dental care to patients residing in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Established two years ago, Volunteers in Medicine (VIM), a free medical clinic, will host this event, according to the Times Leader.
Families who don't have any dental insurance benefits are invited to visit the clinic Monday through Friday during the last week of June between the hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
"The VIM Dental Clinic will play a vital role in increasing access to dental care for individuals without insurance or any means to pay for dental treatment," said Samantha Abod, a dentist and committee member, quoted by the new source. She added that volunteers will "provide high quality preventative care and acute pain management to those who quality."
While families with no dental insurance coverage can benefit from attending free events, finding a discount dental plan can give them the chance to see a dentist on a regular basis.
