Minor Dental Care Free Of Charge

Two dental practices associated with Dentistry from the Heart are holding a free dental services day offering cleanings, fillings and extractions for adults from Central Kentucky who need help with dental problems.

Date: September 20

Venue 1: Pearson Justice Dental, 3285 Blazer Parkway. 9 am to 4 pm.

Venue 2: Lexington Dental Center, 3138 Custer Drive. 7 am to 7 pm.

Hundreds of patients and dental treatments supplied free of charge were offered at last years event and patients arrived to start a queue the night before the event.

Dentists, assistants, nurses, hygienists and helpers are urged to volunteer their time.

Free dental events are a blessing to those who can not normally afford dental treatments as poor oral health is a major contributing factor in other health problems such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis and premature or low birth rates.
