Many Florida-based dentists and dental hygienists will donate their time and provide free dental care treatments to people who are unable to afford these services.
After screening eligible low-income families in the Manatee area, event volunteers made appointments for these individuals to see a dentist and receive dental treatments, according to The Bradenton Herald. Patients who took advantage of this opportunity have received services throughout the week, including dental exams, fillings and teeth cleanings.
By providing treatments at free dental events, volunteer dentists nationwide are contributing to lowering the number of underserved people who are not receiving care for various dental problems. This year, approximately 7,600 people in the U.S. will die from complications linked to poor dental care, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In addition to attending these events, low-income families or people who have little or no dental insurance benefits can take advantage of discount dental plans, which can provide them with access to treatment on a regular basis.
