Patients will receive free dental care during Hope Fest on Saturday, October 22nd at Kino Stadium located at 2500 E. Ajo Way. The services include cleanings, fillings, extractions, and a very limited amount of dentures/partials.
The gates open at 9:00 am and the dental services are based on a first-come, first-served basis. Overnight camping at Kino Stadium is not allowed prior to the event. The dental line will begin at 5:00 am, and not any earlier—we will clear the line if people are there before 5:00 am. The dental services will be provided to adults only.
Our dental professionals are able to serve approximately 400 patients on Saturday. Not all services will be offered to all patients. Unfortunately dentures/partials are very limited and the number is based upon the amount of money raised towards the fees.
Please remember, the dental professionals are all volunteers and we ask that you treat everyone with courtesy and kindness. They are giving their time to help you. We recognize the great need in our community for dental assistance and unfortunately we are not able to treat everyone. We understand that there will always be more people that need help than what we are able to assist. Thank you for your understanding. We always do our best!
ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SERVICES ARE FREE OF CHARGE AND ARE ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS:
PERSONAL CARE ITEMS
and many services and programs to connect with for ongoing care.
