Adults 18 and older in the O’Fallon community will have the opportunity to receive either one free dentistry services ranging from cleaning, extraction or filling at Deer Creek Dental located at 2941 Highway K on Saturday, Nov. 17.
Dr. Jim Fetsch and his team at Deer Creek Dental will be improving the oral health of needy citizens as part of Free Dentistry Day; a day dedicated providing dental care to the growing number of Americans without dental insurance.
“Now more than ever, there are people in O’Fallon 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,” said Dr. Fetsch. “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,” said Dr. Fetsch. “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.”
Either one free cleaning, extraction or filling will be given on Saturday, November 17th, between 7 a.m. and noon at 2941 Highway K in O’Fallon. Registration will take place before the event at the Sunrise United Methodist Church at 7116 Twin Chimneys Blvd. For more information, please call 636-240-0115 or visit www.freedentistryday.org. Appointments will be accepted on a first come first served basis to the first 100 patients
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.
