Kids with No Insurance Get Dental Services in Brown Country
There are thousands of kids across the United States that need dental care or they do not get it on time. But there are organizations that cannot stay indifferent to health problems of kids and they start collecting money to hold free dental days or to provide dental services at a lower cost.
That is why children from Brown Country have a chance to use the benefits of free dental services thanks to the activities performed by the Brown County Oral Health Partnership. Parents received an exclusive opportunity to bring their kids to the Salvation Army’s Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center after the school and to get free dental care if there are no other chances to do that.
At that time, you can see a waiting room there crowded with parents and their kids waiting for the services to receive. It is considered to be one of the most popular places in Green Bay as children with no dental insurance can get their dental problems fixed. Dentists state that every day they get a lot of patients and all the time people are coming there. This information confirms that there is a need for dental services and it needs to be solved as soon as possible.
If nothing is done in the nearest time, the clinic will not be able to accept all the kids and a lot of them will be left with dental pain and other dental issues. By now, about 16,000 kids have already received the needed dental services. The clinic has been serving patients for about 10 years. There are new patients coming each day and dentists served about 3,000 of them last year. According to the estimates, it is more than $6 million spent on all the services but the health of our kids cannot be estimated.
