This Insider Update says the number of people without dental insurance in the United States is expected to grow to 82-million this year because of coronavirus-related job losses and cutbacks. And, this report from Everyday Health says the number one reason people avoid the dentist is that they don't have insurance or are worried about the cost.

Whether or not you are insured is not going to be an issue at Northwest Dental today. The Rochester dental office, located at 2056 Superior Dr. NW, is once again giving back to the community by offering free dental care to anyone in need today. (Friday 9/24/21)
