Homeless community receives free dental care from local doctor
FARGO—Homeless men staying at the New Life Center are getting free dental exams.
For some, this was their first time seeing a dentist in decades.
Dr. Jonathan Bultema says he wanted to give back to the community and help those who might not otherwise have access to dental care.
Patient Dave Weatherly says he was completely unaware he had infections in four teeth, it required all of them to be pulled.
"I don't have insurance at the time. Dental or health at the time to be able to afford to get this done. So it's a good thing to use this opportunity," said Dave Weatherly, Dental Patient.
The one-day clinic started Friday morning at 8:15 and continued until they finished all the work on all the patients in need of help.
