Penn Dentists to Provide Free Care to Underserved Philadelphians
Posted on June 9, 2012
In an effort to better provide for Philadelphia’s underserved residents, the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine is hosting an outreach event, “Nation of Smiles, One Smile at a Time,” on Saturday, June 23, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m, according to the Penn Current.
The program is an extension of the annual meeting of the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD). It will involve Penn dentists, hygienists, and students, as well as several dozen other AGD practitioners, volunteering their time and expertise to offer free examinations, fillings, extractions, pain relief, and additional dental care to an estimated 500 people.
