Families without dental insurance seek treatments

Families without dental insurance seek treatments Families who lack dental insurance may feel as though they have only two options for getting treatment for their dental health problems: visit an emergency room to manage their symptoms or wait for a free dental care event like the one that was recently held in Ashville, North Carolina.

The event was sponsored by the North Carolina Dental Fund. Volunteer dentists provided more than $400,000 worth of services to nearly 900 local residents who lack dental insurance. Organizers said it was the second largest free clinic they had ever held.

Taylor Reed, a resident of Raleigh, North Carolina, drove 250 miles to Ashville the night before the event in order be one of the first in line. Reed had four impacted wisdom teeth and said "it's worth whatever I have to go through. I can hardly eat anything."

While families may feel that events like these are their best hope for receiving treatment for their conditions, they may also benefit from discount dental plans. These programs may help them visit a dentist on a regular basis to receive preventative treatments.
