El Paso dentist Dr. Mehrnoosh Darj helped residents of El Paso and Socorro during this difficult economic period by giving 3 days of free emergency dental treatments on February 21, 22 and 28, 2014.
Dr. Darj noted that many people have lost their dental coverage due to the bad economy and are having to forgo dental care, which put them in danger of tooth decay and gum disease that contributes to problems associated with diabetes, liver and heart problems.
“A total of about 250 patients showed up during our 3 free dental treatment days and we were able to treat them with various procedures ranging from dental fillings to extractions and cleanings” said Dr. Darj. “We gave more than $38 000 in free dentistry”.
Dr. Darj added, “We will be conducting similar community events in El Paso periodically throughout the year to help the less fortunate in our community.”
