Fort Worth, TX — (ReleaseWire) — 10/08/2014 — Despite the move by the Obama administration to make healthcare universal, over 108 million people in the U.S. still have no dental insurance. Many view dental insurance as a ‘nice to have’ rather than an essential, and regret this when they find themselves in discomfort, pain, or with potential serious tooth or gum problems. Fortunately, Dr. H Peter Ku of Fort Worth Texas is holding a ‘Day of Free Dental Care’ for those without insurance. The day will take place on October 24th, and is open to adults and children alike.
‘The Day of Free Dental Care’, supported by his colleagues at their dental practice at 3045 Hamilton Avenue, will allow Dr. Ku to service the needs of adults and children. For children the day will include free preventative cleanings to keep teeth in good health. For adults he will offer free fillings to prevent further damage to worn down teeth, and if needed, extractions and pain relief for those suffering from dental conditions that have already progressed too far.
This community outreach is a localized version of Dr. Ku’s tireless work overseas on dental missions. Those without insurance can call the office to make an appointment and be seen on the ‘Free Dental Care Day’. With spaces filling up fast, the practice has already announced another free day of dental care to be held on December 12th, helping people get out of pain in time to enjoy Christmas dinner.
A spokesperson for Dr. H Peter Ku explained, “Dental health is essential to overall health and wellbeing, and we are not just talking about cosmetics. Many people live with constant pain – a signal from the body that something is wrong- for fear of the cost of undergoing a procedure. Remember, these people have foregone insurance because they can’t afford it, so they certainly can’t afford these procedures without that support. That’s why we want to take the issue of money off the table, and give people the care they need. Because of this, people of all ages will be able to get on with their lives with healthy teeth and gums.”
