Area dentists to participate in Free Dentistry Day
Adults 18 and older in the Peoria community will have the opportunity to receive either one free filling or one free extraction at Willow Knolls Family Dental located at 7310 N. Villa Lake Dr, Suite B in Peoria on Friday, May 18th.
Dr. Ryan Dee of Willow Knolls Family Dental, along with Dr. Thomas Devlin of Smile Design Center, Dr. Susan Isawumi of Affordable Dentistry Today – Peoria, Dr. Bela Joshi of Peoria Family Dental Care and Dr. Ann Marcotte of Affordable Dentistry Today – Bloomington, 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 Peoria 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. Dee. “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. Devlin. “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 filling or one free extraction will be given to those 18 and older on Friday, May 18th, between 8 am – 3 pm at 7310 N. Villa Lake Dr., Suite B in Peoria. For more information, please call 309-691-9072. Appointments will be accepted on a first come first served basis the day of.
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.
