Our statistics are increasing, but our community emergency dental needs are still not being met. Local hospitals are inundated with patients needing antibiotics and sent home to get an exam by a dentist. Many of these patients lack the funds to pay for visits without insurance and the infection eventually comes back.
Since 2005, our volunteers at the Dental Care Access Foundation has helped over 9,842 patients donating over $7.2M in free emergency dental care and preventative services through private practice volunteerism, events and outlying clinics. Help us continue our mission and receive continuing education credits while you volunteer.
