Free Dental Care Resources – Part 2 (Free Dental Clinics)

One of the driving forces in our nation is the spirit of volunteer service.  In the dental community countless dentists, hygienists, and other support staff offer free dental care through free dental clinics. These clinics do not only serve the poor and the homeless, but also the working poor and the uninsured.

There are a few organizations that I want to highlight that work to put together these events in multiple states.  You can check their websites to see if there is an upcoming clinic in your area.

America’s Dentists Care Foundation – http://www.adcfmom.org

Dentistry from the Heart – http://www.dentistryfromtheheart.org/

Give Kids a Smile (run by the American Dental Association) – http://gkas.org/

You can also check with your states dental association to find out what type of free (or discounted) clinics are offered in your state.  The American Dental Association has a list of all state dental associations here – http://www.ada.org/ada/organizations/searchcons1.asp

If you have never seen what one of these events looks like, I wanted to share this video with you. It also gives you a look behind the scenes into what it takes to put such as event on.

If you are dental professional, I encourage you to get involved in one of these events as there is not much greater satisfaction that giving out of what we have.

If this article helps you or someone you know get the dental care that you need, we would love to hear about it.

If you are looking for an alternative to costly dental insurance, please check our our discount dental plans which start at just $79.95 per year.

Stay tuned for Part 3 of Free Dental Care Resources – Dental Schools
