Free dental services offered at Dental Group of Rockford Sept. 20

Staff Report

Rockford residents will have the opportunity to receive free dentistry services ranging from cleanings, fillings and extractions at Dental Group of Rockford, 3065 N. Perryville Road, Suite 125, Saturday, Sept. 20.

Dr. Naveen Ashwathanarayana, Dr. Vikash Huliyar, Dr. Laniel Razdolsky and the teams of Dental Group of Rockford and Gateway Dental Care will be improving the oral health of the community as part of Free Dentistry Day, a day dedicated to providing dental care to the growing number of Americans without dental insurance.

Now, more than ever, there are people in Rockford who need dental services but have no means to afford them — whether they’re out of a job, or just don’t have dental insurance,” said Dr. Ashwathanarayana. “This event is a great opportunity for us to share our time and resources with those less fortunate and give back to the community we serve.”

A free cleaning, filling or extraction will be provided per patient between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 20, at 3065 N. Perryville Road, Suite 125, in Rockford. For more information, call Dental Group of Rockford at (815) 637-2273 or visit www.FreeDentistryDay.org. Patients will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

One third of Americans are living without dental insurance, and current economic conditions leave little room to afford dental procedures.
