“Especially for young people, it’s important that young people make sure that they get in a habit of forming good oral hygiene habits over the course of their life. And seeing a dentist is the first part of that,” said Dan Wright, COO of United Concordia Dental.
The free dental service will be at the York YMCA on Monday, June 27. More free dental days are being scheduled for August of 2022.
