Kansas dental clinic to offer cleanings and fillings for free

Pain in your teeth that doesn’t subside can be a clear signal that one needs to see a dentist, according to the American Dental Association (ADA). For those with no access to dental insurance, seeking immediate help outside of the emergency room can be difficult.

These individuals may be interested to know that free clinics are held across the country to serve the oral needs of low-income and uninsured individuals.

For example, a free dental clinic in Kansas will be held on Kansas State Fairgrounds this weekend. Run by the Kansas Mission of Mercy, the clinic expects to see nearly 1,000 patients each day. The Kansas City Star reports that participants will receive general dental services, including cleanings, fillings and tooth extractions.
