Dentists join forces for free adult dental care day | Events
Local dentist are joining forces this Friday to provided free dental care for adults in the Spokane community. The free dental care day is being presented by Northview Family Dental through the non-profit Dentistry From the Heart and at least 100 people are guaranteed free services.
“There's just so many people in the community who have no dental care,” said Rita Mykleburg, Treatment Coordinator at Northview Family Dental.
Patients can choose from either a filling, extraction or cleaning. A team of 40 dentists, hygienists, oral surgeons, and dental assistants will be on hand to perform the free treatments. A triage station will be set up outside the office to help patients determine which of the three choice best fits their dental needs.
“The clinics are full, they can't take everyone,” said Mykleburg. “We're going to try and help as many people as we can.”
Mykleburg said they expect to see between 75 and 100 people on Friday and that some are already calling regarding tooth pain. The care will be given on a first come first serve basis with registration starting bright and early at 7:30 am. The first 100 patients are guaranteed to be seen, and patients are encouraged to dress appropriately and to anticipate a long wait.
