Residents of the Shelbyville and surrounding community will have the opportunity to receive free dental services at Dental Care of Shelbyville on Friday, September 10.
Drs. Michael Hoagburg, Shuaib Mirani and the team at Dental Care of Shelbyville will improve oral health in 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 US Department of Health and Human Services, approximately 108 million Americans live without dental insurance.
“We understand that many people in our community and across the country have not been to the dentist for a long time. Some don’t understand the importance of dental health, but more often than not they don’t have the financial means,” Dr. Hoagburg said. “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 a growing body of evidence linking oral health to overall health and well-being. Signs and symptoms of over 100 medical conditions including diabetes, HIV/AIDS, Lou Gehrig’s disease and oral cancer can first be detected through traditional oral exams.
“Dental health is a vital part of a person’s overall health,” Dr. Mirani said. “Through this event, we hope to educate patients on the importance of dental health and encourage them to adopt a continuous oral care regimen.
During Free Dentistry Day, cleanings and extractions will be provided to patients on Friday, September 10, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. at 1828 E. State Road 44, Ste 300 in Shelbyville. Patients will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. For more information, please call 317-604-5275 or visit www.FreeDentistryDay.org.
“It’s very gratifying to see the impact that events like Free Dentistry Day can have on a person’s life. As we change their lives, they change ours,” Dr. Hoagburg said.
