Local Dentists Provide Free Care for Young Adults in Need

Local Dentists Provide Free Care for Young Adults in Need

 

A local charity partnered with four local dentists to bring much-needed dental care to a group of young adults in need.

The dentists performed basic dental care for 26 young adults from the HELP of Southern Nevada's Shannon West Homeless Youth Center.

In all, the dentists performed about $10,000 worth of dental care, including nine tooth extractions, 17 fillings, and sealants on 32 teeth. The effort was made possible with the help of Smile It Forward, a local nonprofit that helps dentists provide free dental care to people in need.

A local business donated the dental materials, office supplies, food and dental equipment for the event but asked to remain anonymous.
