Dental clinic brightens smiles of uninsured



Cascade Park West — Around 130 uninsured patients were treated to free dental care from Gillespie Dentistry on Oct. 22. Five local dentists donated treatments worth around $40,000 during the eight-hour clinic. The patients who needed prescriptions were given free antibiotics, Tylenol and ibuprofen. Volunteers helped with the crowd, which was treated to grilled hot dogs and bottled water after treatment and sent home with a bag of dental goodies including toothbrushes and floss.
