Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 11, 2014
Dentist in Denver Dr. Charles Barotz is giving over $200 worth of free dental services to each resident in order to bring dental awareness to the community in tandem with helping a local food pantry.
The New York Times has recently mentioned how Americans are delaying health treatments even if they have been insured. The reason behind is an economic reason: many insured could not afford the co-payments
Dr. Barotz, who has been practicing in the Denver area for many years, knows that this delay of treatments usually leads to bigger health problems. In dentistry for example, delayed dental care can easily lead to gum diseases which then could cause weakened immune problems, leading to heart, lung and liver diseases. Even pregnant mothers could have still-born or pre-matured babies due to gum diseases.
At the same time, how could a person see a dentist if he or she could not even afford three square meals a day?
Dr Barotz explained, "It is a growing problem. Food demands at the local food pantries have increased and yet food donations have decreased."
Dr Barotz felt he needed to do something when he read an article on CNN about how 1 out of 6 Americans is going hungry.
“Among the hungry in America are 47 million children. This is very shocking." Dr Charles Barotz remarked.
With some planning, he came out with an idea to help in both areas: help Americans with dental care and also assist the local food pantries.
As an author of the healthcare book "The Power of a Beautiful Smile", he has always wanted more people to improve their dental IQ by reading and finding out how easy it is to maintain good dental health and how a beautiful dental smile can change your life.
Thus, he thought of getting the public to acquire two copies of his book from Barnes and Nobles bookstores, and he would donate all proceeds of the book to “Food Bank of the Rockies."
To reward those who have participated in the campaign, he will give away $200 worth of free dentistry to each individual who has helped.
"I called this a win-win-win situation," smiled Dr Barotz, Denver dentist. "I could get the public to read about dental health and help the Hungry families and get people to actually do their dental treatments at the same time!"
The campaign spearheaded by Dr. Barotz to benefit people in need of health care as well as the local food bank will happen on exactly June 26th 2014 Thursday. Exactly on June 26th, two copies of the book need to be purchased online on Barnes and Nobles. Dental appointments will be scheduled after July 1st.
“In a troubled economy that affects many Americans, the spirit of giving to others is needed more than ever. The more people who know about this effort, the more needy families can receive aid.” Dr. Barotz concluded.
