Ohio dentist provides free oral care for one day
Updated: 11/29/2010 5:00:12 PM

Ohio dentist provides free oral care for one day Recently, one Ohio dentist - Bryan Basom - provided free dental care to anyone who walked in the door at his office and needed it, according to the Chillicothe Gazette.

Basom explained to the newspaper that the reason he wanted to offer dental care free of charge was "just to give back." He added that "with the economy the way it is, a lot of people have fallen on hard times."

The news source reports that many of the patients who visited Basom's Magnolia Dental Office did not earn enough annually to afford healthcare, and that they made the minimum amount of money to disqualify them from government healthcare aid.

Some of the patients waiting for oral services had been in line since 4:30 a.m.

According to Basom, the turnout for the free dental care was huge, and he said he hopes that by making this an annual event that a greater number of people will attend next year, the news provider reports.

Approximately 45 million Americans who are under the age of 65 do not have dental insurance, according to the latest statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Fortunately, there are affordable, low-cost ways that individuals can seek dental coverage for themselves and their families.
