Dentistry from the Heart

Every year my roommate and friend’s father, Gary Cameron, owner of Asheboro Dental Care, organizes Free Dentistry Day, a day in which the first 200 hopefuls in line get ritual cleanings, extractions, and other basic procedures for free.  He’s basically a baller. I did this back in early December.

Next to the already huge staff, a number of volunteers helped out that day.

Some patients waited in line since 4pm the day before.

Dr. Cameron gives one of the first patients a numbing shot.

After posting some of these on Facebook, I got a few comments about how excited people are about these random acts of kindness, and how their faith in humanity was failing but this restored it, it was kind of silly, but this is seriously one of the most generous, love-filled things I’ve witnessed.

    Ha! You said baller!

  3. Baller as in
    1. A thug or OG that has hit big time?
    2. An inner city ball player that has made it pro?
    or
    3. One whose status in society has been earned by one’s possession of “game” (that is, proficiency at the game of life)?

  4. Thanks Brian,
    and Maria, definitely 3.

  6. Purchase from local manufacturers if possible; if not, purchase direct from the manufacturer
    to ensure the most freshness – all-natural beauty products don’t contain chemical preservatives, so their shelf-life may be shorter than their conventional chemical-filled counterparts. The allergens in these compounds could be bad for people with sensitive skin, and some believe that long term exposure may be linked to certain cancers, like those of the breast. The summer time is the best time to have skin exfoliation.
