Free dental services

A local dentist opened his doors for a day of free dental services to people using the Cornerstone Rescue Mission. I saw a guy get some teeth pulled and another guy (bottom photo) with severe, like severe, gum disease and tooth decay. The lack of dental hygiene education in this area is astonishing. We found a mother who didn't even know it was a bad idea to be giving her kids a bottle of Kool-Aid as they went to bed. Her two-year-old (top photo) and three-year-old's baby teeth were rotting. These free services were much needed and a great way for this office to be giving back to the community.
