If you had any doubt about the St. Louis economy, all you had to do was show up this morning for Boardwalk Family Dental’s free day of dentistry and you would know. Why were all these people crammed onto a sidewalk in front of a generous dentist’s office?
Today, the Winghaven Boardwalk Family Dentist is offering a free day of dentistry; Friday, September 30. It started at 8:00 a.m.
When people are jobless, and hurting for money, services like dental care can fall down on the list of what to spend money on. So when these services are offered free, it brings out a crowd. At 8:00 a.m., the line of people waiting for a free dental day was streaming along both sides of the front of the building. There were police there for crowd management, and a news crew from a St. Louis Fox station. Why were this many people waiting in line on brisk September morning?
They were waiting for one of 3 services, or possibly all 3. Today only, Boardwalk Family Dentist in Winghaven is offering free cleaning, free cavity fill, or a free extraction. You can receive one service and then get back in line if you want to take part in a 2nd or 3rd service. It’s all free!
The dentist and assistants were working hard to move the line quickly. When you arrive, you need to first go to the table up front to fill out some paperwork. Then, get in line and wait. From the looks of the line, it will probably take several hours to reach the end. However, if your teeth are in need of a dental service, it’s a deal that can’t be beat.
