Statistics show that currently there are about 45 million Americans who do not have dental insurance.
Even though such a free dental clinic can offer treatments to only a tiny fraction of that number, it can still make a difference in the life of some people.
This free dental clinic welcomed patients 18+ years old, and they had the chance to select between one free professional dental cleaning, a tooth extraction or a cavity filling.
As early as 3:00pm on Friday, patients started gathering in line for the free dental clinic.
The free dental clinic has been held at the Redeemer Lutheran Church in Springfield, Mo.
The good news is that patients who couldn’t make it for this free dental clinic, are welcome to join another free dental care event in the area.
On October 18th there will be another free dental clinic day held at the Marshfield Family Dental Care in Marshfield.
The exact location is 100 Spur Drive, and the free dental clinic will open its doors starting with 8:00am and last until 2:00pm.
