Access to dental care – what does it mean? If you or I have a toothache, it means picking up the phone and calling our dentist. We have access to getting the problem fixed quickly. It’s not so simple for thousands of people living in our community who can’t afford dental care.
Leala, a first grader with painful cavities in almost every tooth, was falling behind in school. Tom, a farmer with lung cancer, couldn’t get the surgery he needed until treatment for his gum disease was complete. David was missing his front teeth and was rejected at every job he applied for. Fahria couldn’t find a dentist who would accept their family insurance and also needed an interpreter as she was still learning English. Jerica had so many cavities she couldn’t chew or drink water without pain. All of these patients had one thing in common — they did not have access to affordable dental care.
With your gift to Community Dental Care, we’ll be able to provide quality dental care and preventive education to individuals most in need. Join us to end dental disease in our community!
