The free dental services are part of a larger effort. “It’s a great opportunity for us to get out into the community and reinforce how important dental care is, especially with children, and establishing those habits early in life,” said Braxton Voyles, director of partnership at United Concordia Dental.

The dental services provided included x-rays, cleanings, and fluoride applications.
