Dental Care Needs Are Immense

Article excerpt

I volunteered Saturday as a nurse in medical triage at the Mission of Mercy free dental clinic held at PPG Paints Arena June 29-30. It was a sight to behold.

I met the finest people there that day, not only in the hundreds of medical and non-medical volunteers but also in the patients humbly looking for dental care. There was a kindness and compassion in the entire operation that one may not encounter every day but was so evident in that space.

Many thanks to the organizers and personnel for providing such a vital service. At a time when there is indifference to the health care needs of many, I was encouraged by what I observed that day.

I will be back to help out next year. It was the best "feel good" day ever.
