Residents in the Lockport community and surrounding areas will have the opportunity to receive free dental services at Porter Dental Center on June 7.
Dr. Ghazal Niloufar, Dr. Rohan Shah and team at Porter Dental Center will be improving the oral health of the community as part of Free Dentistry Day, a day dedicated to providing free dental care to the growing number of Americans without dental insurance.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, approximately 108 million Americans are living without dental insurance.
There is increasing evidence that links oral health to overall health and well-being. The signs and symptoms of over 100 medical conditions, including diabetes, HIV/AIDS, Lou Gehrig’s disease and oral cancer may first be detected through traditional oral examinations.
During Free Dentistry Day, cleanings, fillings and extractions will be provided to patients on from 8 a.m. to noon June 7 at 16620 W 159th St in Lockport. Patients will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
