There was a one-day free dentistry event on April 4 hosted by Cleveland Family Dentistry and Dentistry From the Heart.
The event provided free dental treatments to patients who had no dental coverage or who could not afford dental charges.
“We are guaranteed to see 60 patients, but we are hoping to see between 80 and 100,” said Paige Bonds, a hygiene coordinator for the local practice, about midway through the event.
The free clinic was due to end at 3pm, but the dental volunteers pushed on and didn’t finish until 5.45pm helping 75 patients to receive much needed dental care, with free tooth extractions being the most required treatment.
“We definitely want to do this again so we have been taking notes for next time.”
