I saw this headline “Fighting toothlessness in Appalachia” and had to read the article. I think that it is the same kind of morbid curiousity that makes people slow down when they pass a wreck. It gets even better.
With a silvery Airstream trailer as a dental office, Dr. Jeff Bailey goes about his work, brightening the often gapped smiles of people in a part of the country with the highest rate of toothlessness in America.
Hehe, a trailer no less!!!
Bailey is part of an effort organized by Southern Baptist churches. Other charitable organizations have opened free clinics in church buildings or held dental-care events in Wal-Mart parking lots across the region, handing out free samples of toothpaste, floss and toothbrushes.
“Hey, ma, why don’t we take the young’uns to the Wal-Mart and get thems teeth cleaned?”
