Dental care is either unavailable or an unaffordable luxury for many adults living in South Carolina. It is common to find residents with severe pain, discomfort, and embarrassment due to poor oral health. In order to address access to care for many indigent South Carolinians, the South Carolina Dental Association is planning to launch a dental access initiative, DAD, which will primarily focus on adults with the majority of care being extractions and restorative work. We estimate we’ll need $25,000-$50,000 and at least 100 dental volunteers to stage our project.
Thank you to all of our volunteers and sponsors for our 2014 Dental Access Days in Rock Hill. We saw over 1,400 patients and gave away over $950,000 in care. Our 2015 Dental Access Days project will be held in Greenville, SC at the TD Center August 21-22, 2015.
