DANVILLE — Danville area residents have a chance to receive free dentistry services on April 26 as part of Free Dentistry Day.
Dr. Jameson Baumgarten and his team will provide either one free cleaning, extraction or filling from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at North Vermilion Family Dental, at 3607 North Vermilion, Suite 4, in Danville.
Appointments will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis.
Free Dentistry Day is a day that's dedicated to providing dental care to the growing number of Americans without dental insurance.
One third of Americans are living without dental insurance and current economic conditions leave little room to afford dental procedures. Without events like Free Dentistry Day, dental care simply isn't an option for many uninsured people.
"Now more than ever, there are people in Danville who need dental services but have no means to afford them whether they're out of a job or just don't have dental insurance," Baumgarten said in a release. "This event is a great opportunity for us to share our time and resources with those less fortunate and give back to the community we serve."
"Our team is committed to lifetime dental care because good oral health is integral to overall health," he continued.
"By participating in this program, our goal is to engage patients and encourage them to adopt an ongoing oral care program and a lifelong regimen of preventative care."
