If you need dental or orthodontic treatment yet lack the funds or dental insurance to get the work done you may qualify for free dental services at many dental colleges in the United States.
There are thousands of students at these schools that are desperate for volunteers to perform treatment on.
In order to fulfill the requirements to complete their degree, most dental students are required to perform work on actual patients while under the watchful eyes of an instructor.
The problem is a shortage of volunteers. Since most of the general public are not aware they can receive treatment for free or reduced fees, the dental student is left with no one to practice on.
Many Dental Colleges offer free treatment to the public so dental students can complete enough procedures to meet the requirements necessary to complete their degree. Here is a List of Dental Schools that provide free or reduced fees.
