Are You in Need of Free Dental Care?

Dental Care

Many families are not receiving dental care in Mesa, Arizona. These families, however, are able to get dental care through dental programs that are available through Child Development Services, Migrant Services, and Head Start.

In these programs, children and their families receive dental care for free as they are federally funded initiatives. These programmes require qualified dental practitioners and assistants to provide procedures and dental cleanings to patients. It is important for these patients to learn about proper dental hygiene to maintain quality dental care on their own as much as they can.

Family members are generally given handouts as well as toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, and pills, which highlight plaque you missed on your teeth by turning the areas a bright color.

There are also non-profit organisations and low cost clinics that provide dental care to patients in a low income bracket. You can find a low cost clinic near you using the website FreeDentalCare. Services that can be provided include cleanings, checkups, caps, dentures and braces.

Dr Donald Clifford gets a strong satisfaction in helping families obtain dental care. To the staff at Arizona Advanced Dental, it is more rewarding than any increase in pay. The lack of programs to help those who can’t afford adequate dental care is a huge concern for dentists all across the nation. Many dental professionals agree to assist with education and providing services to low income populations because they understand the need is dire.

Arizona Advanced Dental would like to see the expansion of mobile Mesa AZ dentists, public dental clinics, and school based dental clinics. Our dentists would also like to see schools and other educational programs focusing more on oral hygiene and advising children to brush their teeth twice a day, as well as demonstrating the correct way to brush their teeth, the importance of flossing, and the proper way to floss.

Another possibility to promote oral health in schools would be to add toothbrushes and areas in each classroom, where students can brush their teeth after breakfast and lunch on a daily basis.

If you are in need of dental care and are not financially able to get the help you need, contact Arizona Advanced Dental for more information.
