"We understand that many people in our community and across the nation haven't been to the dentist for a long period of time. Some don't understand the importance of dental health, but more often than not, they don't have the financial means, " said Dr. Kaelin. "This event is a great opportunity for us to share our time and resources with those less fortunate and give back to the community."
"Dental health is a vital part of a person's overall health," said Dr. Straus. "Through this event, we hope to educate patients on the importance of dental health and encourage them to adopt an ongoing oral care regimen"
