Los Angeles Dentist Devotes Time to Give Free Dental Care for Jobless Women
Brentwood dentist Dr. J Grossman will help LA area moms with free dental care April 6
LOS ANGELES--Dr. J Grossman has announced he will be donating his dental services on April 6 to provide free dental care to Los Angeles-area women who have been laid off from their jobs. The decision comes at a time in which jobs all over California are being lost, and families are struggling to find ways to tighten their budgets, while still taking care of themselves and providing for their families.
The program, called JOBLESS MOMS DAY WITH DR. J will begin on April 6 and will continue at his Brentwood practice on a regular basis until the economy improves.
Unemployed women in the area are encouraged to email Dr. Grossman (email@example.com)
"With the way things are right now, so many people can't afford dental care, so this is one way that I can do my part to help move things along," Dr. Grossman said. "We're hoping we can put smiles on the faces of as many hard-working moms as we can until the economy turns around."
Additionally, Dr. Grossman hopes to encourage the job hunting process, as women who look and feel their best have a better shot at beginning a new career.
Dr. Grossman noted that gum disease in pregnant women has been associated with pre-term and low birth weight babies, and that poor oral hygiene can lead to diabetes, cardiovascular disease and stroke.
