El Paso Dentist Helped Locals With FREE Dentistry

El Paso dentist Dr. Mehrnoosh Darj helped residents of El Paso and Socorro during this difficult economic period by giving 2 free emergency dental treatment days on Oct. 26, 2012 and Nov 2, 2012.

This is the second time this year Dr. Darj offered her services at no cost. Her staff, Dr. Abid and Dr. Kean also volunteered their time.

Over 170 people showed up at both locations and Dr. Darj was able to treat 154 of them with various procedures ranging from fillings and cleanings to extractions.

More than $18000 were given in free dentistry.

“I wanted to do my part as a dentist to help and hope other health care professionals would join us in a similar effort in the future” said Dr. Darj.
