Dental Services for Low Income Citizens of Jacksonville
A lot of people consider it a big day when discussing a new opportunity to get affordable dental services. This opportunity was presented in the form of the Apple Project. A new clinic was opened to provide thousands of people with dental care which is not affordable for everyone nowadays. Since it is the first dental clinic in Jacksonville which serves free dental services, it means a lot to the citizens of the area. People may qualify for free dental services under state guidelines.
As a result, people that have low income or do not have insurance will be able to get a number of services without paying a cent. Dentists that work there are planning to serve about 5 thousand people as the clinic is equipped with six dental chairs and the capacity is considered to be rather high. People waited for about 17 months and now they are pretty happy to visit it. The clinic is full of people and everyone is trying to fix the dental issues as soon as possible.
But still, there are not so many people who know about this Apple Project and more patients are expected to come. We cannot deny the fact that the first impression is generally made by your smile and it is an excellent chance to improve it at no cost. To realize this project, the community members managed to collect nearly a million dollars in the form of cash and different donations.
Before opening, people could only get on the waiting list with the help of an application form. Though there are still some disadvantages associated with the work organization, people are happy to get relief and to start a new life. A new smile can change your life in different ways and you will see how the world will change for the better.
