Last Saturday, plenty of Michiana residents got a smile painted on their face.
The Mahoney Family Dentistry held a free dentistry day where they offered free of charge dental services such as cleanings, fillings and extractions to the less fortunate in the area.
In 2011 when they organized the event, the dentists managed to treat about 200 people in one single day.
Moreover, the patients also received education regarding how one can maintain a healthy smile.
Such free dental care events are extremely welcome in areas where people do not have access to dental care either because of he lack of money or because they do not have proper dental insurance.
Besides free dental wok, the clinic also provided free mammogram screenings for early detection of cancer and other complications.
