SHELBYVILLE, Ky. (KT) – Churches are giving back to communities by hosting mobile dental clinics through April.
The initiative, called Whole Health Kentucky, uses volunteer dental professionals to help restore physical health while also providing an outlet for churches to serve the people who live in nearby neighborhoods.
First Baptist Church of Shelbyville, Ky., hosts the next dental clinic on March 17. At each location will be a state-of-the-art mobile dental unit provided by the Kentucky Baptist Convention, in partnership with the North American Mission Board’s Send Relief.
Christian dentists and dental professionals working at a clinic in Bowling Green earlier this month treated 89 patients, made up of mostly refugees, with such services as cleanings, filings and extractions.
Dental clinics will be held:
