Southern University at Shreveport is giving back to the community one smile at a time. They teamed up with Miles for Smiles Mobile Dental Care to offer free oral care.
They offered extractions, fillings and cleanings. Several health care students volunteered and dozens of people attended.
“You only get one set of teeth, so you have to take care of them. It is the gateway to your body. And so dental health is usually an elective, people choose to put it on the back burner when in fact it should be the first thing you think about,” said Anneka Alexander,Miles for Smiles.
The dental clinic at Southern University is open throughout the week. And for a small fee dental students will service patients.
