Wal­dorf den­tist of­fice serves 159 on na­tional Free Den­tistry Day

Maryland Independent - - Business -

One hun­dred and fifty-nine Wal­dorf-area peo­ple re­ceived free dental ser­vices from Neibauer Dental Care of Wal­dorf on Satur­day, Oct. 1, as part of Free Den­tistr y Day.

The nationwide pro­gram was founded to pro­vide dental care to the grow­ing num­ber of Amer­i­cans with­out dental in­sur­ance. Den­tists, as­sis­tants and vol­un­teers pro­vided over $37,100 worth of den­tistry, in­clud­ing clean­ings, fill­ings and ex­trac­tions through­out the day, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.

“We are very pleased with the suc­cess of this event,” Dr. Prita Ghosh said in the re­lease. “Un­for­tu­nately, many peo­ple do not see a den­tist on a rou­tine ba­sis. We were hon­ored to open our doors to those in our com­mu­nity and vol­un­teer our time and re­sources to make sure they re­ceived the care they need and deser ve.”

One third of Amer­i­cans are liv­ing with­out dental in­sur­ance and cur­rent eco­nomic con­di­tions leave lit­tle room to af­ford dental pro­ce­dures, ac­cord­ing to the re­lease. With­out events like Free Den­tistry Day, dental care sim­ply isn’t an op­tion for many unin­sured peo­ple.
