Brooklyn, NY, Feb. 2, 2011 /Press Release/ — WorlDental.org, online Dental Health Magazine reported about more than 1500 free dental events since the last February.
More than 1 million readers were able to find affordable and free dental services.
Many organizations and dental insurers recognize February as Dental Health Month, the time when dental professionals try to raise awareness about the importance of dental health and offer free dental care to needy.
“More than 40% of Americans do not have dental insurance”, said Christina Malitowski, editor of WorlDental.org.
“According to recent study, that prevents 83% of them from having dental check-ups.”
“Dental Health Month is a chance for uninsured to receive dental care they need”, explained Malitowski.
During February thousands of dentists and dental clinics volunteering in programs such as Give Kids A Smile, Dentistry From the Heart providing free dental education and services to uninsured kids and adults across the country.
“We all know that dental health is very important. WorlDental.org regularly reports about free dental events scheduled to reach people in need of help,” said Malitowski.
“We also encourage dentist and other dental professionals to take a part in these great events.”
Patients who are interested in finding free dental care can visit WorlDental.org site’s section: Free Dental Care Reports.
Very few low-income people know where to ask for affordable and free dental help.
Most of volunteer dentists use Internet to inform needy about events scheduled. However, the economic crisis reduced the number of dentists willing to provide free dental care services.
“We saw the increase of visitors coming to WorlDental.org in search of free and affordable dental care opportunities since last year,” said Christina Malitowski.
“And we are glad that we can provide them information about care they can afford.”
