Dentists in Orland Park, Illinois, will be providing free dental services on Friday 21st October, it has been confirmed.
Dentists at Fountain Square Family Dental and Rock Run Family Dentistry will be offering a range of dental services to patients of all ages, as part of Free Dentistry Day. Free Dentistry Day is an event dedicated to people who do not have dental insurance and those who cannot afford dental treatment.
Dr Eric Salud, from Fountain Square Family Dental, said there was a growing demand for affordable dental care, as more and more people struggle to afford dental treatment. Dr Salud added that the event was a great way to help people in need and bring the community together.
Dr Maribeth Love, of Rock Run Family Dentistry, said that participating in the event was very important because the team was dedicated to promoting oral health and helping local people to live healthy and fulfilling lives.
Free cleaning treatments, tooth extractions and fillings will be available at the offices between 9am and 3pm. 100 appointments will be available and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Studies show that a third of people in the USA do not have dental insurance and organisers are expecting a large turnout.
