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.

On the third Thursday of every month, the group hosts a free clinic at Choffin Career and Technical Center in Youngstown. 

November 21st is the next schedule event. 

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.

To attend the clinic, you must be pre-approved by Access Health Mahoning Valley.  You can contact them at 330-746-5424 or 330-373-0703.
