Free dental clinic to be offered at Fairgrounds
HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — A group called the Kansas Mission of Mercy is planning for a large turnout at its free dental care clinic this weekend in Hutchinson. The group will offer free cleanings, fillings and extractions on Friday and Saturday at the Kansas State Fairgrounds.
Dr. Steven Wilson, co-chairman of the group, says no pre-registration is taken. The fairgrounds will open the Sunflower south building on Thursday night for those who want to wait overnight. About 1,000 people will be seen each day. The first Mission of Mercy clinic was in Garden City in 2003, and subsequent clinics have been held across the state.
Free dental services offered in New Port Richey on Feb. 11
If you need free dental work — and you don’t mind camping out for it — mark your calendar for Feb. 11. That’s the day Monticciolo Sedation and Family Dentistry plans to provide free fillings, cleanings and extractions to people on a first-come, first-served basis. Dr. Vincent Monticciolo founded the Dentistry from the Heart program in 2001 to provide free dental care around Valentine’s Day. “People who don’t have insurance or can’t afford dental work don’t have many low-cost or free care options available to them,” Monticciolo said. “Our passion is to give back to our community, helping the best way we can through donating our dental care services.” Monticciolo and his staff will start at 7:30 a.m. and will work a 10-hour day to help more than 500 patients at no cost.
