The scope of the free dental clinic was to offer help to patients in need- who cannot otherwise afford the needed dental care.
At this free dental clinic, there have been well over 300 licensed dentists, pharmacists and dental hygienists present, who donated their time and skills in the benefit of the people.
The free dental clinic was hosted last Friday and Saturday.
The free dental clinic has been held at the St. Vincent Pallotti High School.
The gymnasium, has temporarily transformed into a massive free dental clinic to serve patients from the community.
The free dental clinic served adults only, and some of the treatments offered included professional dental cleanings, cavity fillings, extractions and more.
The main sponsor of the free dental clinic has been the Maryland Dept. of Oral Health and the Catholic Charities.
According to the staff at the free dental clinic, they had some patients who didn’t see a dentist in as many as 15 years.
There have also been quite many very young patients who struggled with so many complex dental problems, that they needed most of their teeth extracted.
