Free Dental Services in San Tan Valley Sept 18th

freedentist-day

Residents in the San Tan Valley community and surrounding areas will have the opportunity to receive free dental services at San Tan Mountain Dental, 545 E Hunt Hwy, San Tan Valley, AZ 85143, on Saturday, September 18.

Dr. Dylan Thomas, Dr. Anna Salibi of San Tan Mountain Dental, Dr. Pu Yu Su of Tumbleweed Dental Care, Dr. Nicholas Galles and Dr. Kurt Eklund of Cotton Ridge Dental, and their teams 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.

"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. Dylan Thomas. "This event is a great opportunity for us to share our time and resources with those less fortunate and give back to the community."

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.

"Dental health is a vital part of a person's overall health," said Dr. Kurt Eklund. "Through this event, we hope to educate patients on the importance of dental health and encourage them to adopt an ongoing oral care regimen."

During Free Dentistry Day, cleanings, fillings and extractions will be provided to patients on Saturday, September 18, between 9am and 2pm at San Tan Mountain Dental in San Tan Valley. Patients will be accepted by appointment only. Please call the office in advance to schedule your appointment. Patients who arrive without an appointment are welcome to sign in and wait for availability. For more information, please call 480-476-9180 or visit https://FreeDentistryDay.org.

"It's very gratifying to see the impact that events like Free Dentistry Day can have on the life of a person. While we're changing their life, they're changing ours," said Dr. Anna Salibi.
