Ballantyne Center for Dentistry Participated in The Missions of Mercy Free Dental Care Clinic

For two consecutive years, Ballantyne Center for Dentistry headed by Dr. Yaste and Dr. Hufanda volunteered and participated in the Missions of Mercy Free Dental Care in Charlotte NC.

Dec. 14, 2012 - PRLog -- The spirit of volunteerism stays alive with Ballantyne Center for Dentistry a notable cosmetic dentistry practice in Charlotte. The said dental office participated in the Missions of Mercy Free dental care clinic held December 8th to 9th of this year from 6 AM to 6 PM the next day. The said drive was open to all individuals 18 years old and older who do not earn 200 percent from the federal poverty level baseline. Patients were given a form to fill out to qualify for the free dental service. Last year a total of about 2,100 patients were provided with free dental care, this year the number of patients were about 2,000.  

By Thursday night through Friday morning, there were around 1,000 dental patients waiting in line before the clinic officially opened by Friday 6:30 PM. The drive was successfully able to provide dental care to 2,000 plus patients who needed teeth extraction, partial dentures, fillings and oral prophylaxis. Although the volunteer turn out was high, the organizers of the event had to close its doors to the remaining patients outside of the 2,000 headcount so the volunteers can focus on the patients who arrived early. Over all, the event was successful, with about $1.1 million worth of dental care provided for free.  

Ballantyne Center for Dentistry together with its dentists and dental staff, are very happy and proud to be part of such monumental event. They will continue to keep the spirit of volunteerism alive in the next free dental drive for those who need it most in the next coming up events that they will join.
