YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Oral health is the top unmet health need of both adults and children living in Ohio. 

To help the under served, Access Health Mahoning Valley and the Corydon Palmer Dental Society have teamed up to offer free care.

At the clinic, volunteers perform simple extractions, fillings and provide preventative care to patients between the ages of 18 and 64, who don't have insurance.

"We have volunteer dentists.  We have volunteer hygienists through the Dental Hygiene Association.  We have volunteer dental assistants.  We use everybody because we just want to provide the best care," said Dr. Debbie Juruaz with Corydon Palmer Dental Society.
