Gift of Smiles Event a Success!!

The Buncombe County Dental Society partnered with the ABCCM and AB Tech to provide the first Gift of Smiles event for uninsured and unemployed Buncombe County citizens.  Approximately 92 patients received comprehensive dental exams and x-rays and 67 of those patients received free dental services including dental cleanings, dental fillings, and tooth extractions.  Over a two day period, BCDS dentists provided a total of $52,957.00 of dental services free of charge.
