We were able to treat over 130 patients for free, performing various dental procedures
El Paso, TX (PRWEB) February 23, 2015
El Paso TX dentist Dr. Mehrnoosh Darj helpes residents of El Paso and Socorro during this difficult economic period by giving 2 days of free emergency dental treatments.
She completed the free dentistry event on February 20th Friday at 2 of her 3 offices in El Paso and Socorro
The second date will be Saturday March 14th from 8am to 3pm at 1861 Robert Wynn Street Suite D, El Paso, TX 79936
The No Cost Emergency Dental Treatment Days were designed to treat anyone (adult or child) at no cost who has a dental emergency and who cannot afford dental care on a first-come-first-served basis.
Realizing that many people are struggling in the current economy, Affordable Dental Associates owner Dr. Darj wants to give people, who couldn't otherwise afford it, an opportunity to take care of dental problems before they become more serious, and more costly.
Dr. Darj noted that many people have lost their dental coverage due to the bad economy and are having to forgo dental care, which put them in danger of tooth decay and gum disease that contributes to problems associated with diabetes, liver and heart problems.
“A total of about 130 patients showed up during our two event and we were able to treat them with various procedures ranging from dental fillings to extractions and cleanings” said Dr. Darj. “We are hoping to help even more people in need on March 14th”.
In addition to free dental days, Dr Darj has also held numerous community events including food drives, and also Do A Good Deed contests which inspired youths to focus on performing good deeds. On January 29th Dr. Darj donated $3393 and food to El Pasoans Fighting Hunger. The money and food donations were collected during her last event – a Holiday Food Drive, which ended on Jan 31st 2015.
“I would like to do my part as a dentist to help and hope other healthcare providers would join me and organize a similar effort in their community to help keep our fellow Americans healthy.” explained Dr. Darj.
Dr. Darj added, “We will be conducting similar community events in El Paso periodically throughout the year to help the less fortunate in our community.”
