Free dental clinc has a been a huge success, and around 126 patients were treated at no charge.
The one day clinic in Kutztown provided free dental work worth of several thousands of dollars.
This was a project sponsored by Dentistry from the Heart, and the services were offered on a first come first served basis.
Patients started arriving to the clinic around midnight in order to get a fair chance to receive free dental work.
As many as 8 volunteer dentists worked for 10 hours long in order to provide needy adults and children with free dental work.
Among the free dental services, dentists offered free dental fillings, professional cleanings and extractions. The volunteer dentists managed to serve 126 patients during the one day free dental clinic.
Even though children might get free dental work covered through social programs, adults are less fortunate.
The underemployed, the unemployed and the elderly do not get coverage for free dental work through associations, insurance or social programs. This is why such free humanitarian programs are so important.
The organizers of the Kutztown free dental work project, hope to make this Dentistry from the Heat project an annual one.
