Loma Linda School Of Dentistry To Provide Free Care For A Day

They will do this on January 13th 2013 - for one day.  They will not do crown, root canals, or dentures.

I am all for qualified dentists providing free care - read about that here.

However, this is a university clinic and I am VERY concerned that this is just an attempt to give the students an opportunity to fulfill their clinic requirements before moving on to graduation.

I ran into a woman in Kansas City a few years who was using a university clinic for low cost treatments.   I was a bit concerned when she told me just how much work had been done for (to?) her.

She was still relatively young in her twenties.

Again, I am for qualified and licensed dentist giving free care to their communities in order to 'give back' to society.  When the economics involved are so lopsided it only seems fair. 

School clinics are another story entirely.
