This has been a Texas Mission of Mercy free dental care event, and the main sponsor was the Texas Dental Association’s Smiles Foundation.
This has been the second year when the free dental care days are held in the area.
During these days, free dental care has been provided to the uninsured and underinsured patients from the area.
Well over 80 dentists and hundreds of volunteers joined their forces to offer their skills and time in the benefit of the community.
The free dental care days were held at the Civic Center in Amarillo.
This has been a first come first served free dental are clinic, and as many as 857 patients received the needed dental treatments at no charge.
The Texas Mission of Mercy free dental care event on June 28 and 29 has provided $664,036 worth of free dental treatments. Per patient, the average value reached $775 in free dental care.
Patients have been so thankful for this free dental care clinic many of them even sent thank you notes to the organizer. Such a free dental care clinic takes up about one year in preparations.
Most likely, the next Texas Mission of Mercy free dental care event in Amarillo will be held only in 2017.
