Dentists say that brushing and flossing are not enough. Adults need to have their teeth professionally cleaned every six months to avoid cavities and gum disease. However, many people cannot afford to have their teeth cleaned regularly.
That is why a free dental clinic for adults will be held on Saturday, January 21, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at the First United Methodist Church in downtown Raleigh. The clinic is sponsored by the church and the Raleigh Dental Society.
Dentists who are members of the Raleigh Dental Society will provide free cleanings, X-rays, and fillings to adults who have no dental insurance and cannot afford to see a dentist. To be eligible for services, participants must be at least 18 years old and live in Wake County or one of the surrounding counties.
