Too many Mainers do not have dental coverage and today Dentists Who Care for ME will provide free treatment and services on a first come, first served basis. Check out dentistswhocareforme.com for more information.

Some services included are cleanings, cavity filling and tooth extractions. This program began ten years ago and has served over 3,000 patients and donated $1.2 million dollars in care.

The day is carried by volunteers: dentists, dental hygienists, dental students and extra support staff.  There are participating dentists in Portland, South Portland, Scarborough, Falmouth, Skowhegan and Presque Isle.

Today is the day, here is a list of participating locations. Pass on the good word to anyone in your life who has been living with a sore tooth or needs a free cleaning and check up.
