More Than 2,200 Patients Expected At Free Dental Clinic

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Hartford’s XL Center for two days will be turned into the state’s largest dental office.
The Connecticut Foundation for Dental Outreach is opening up its annual two-day free clinic on Friday. The clinic is for people who need dental work done but can’t
afford it. The arena’s convention floor will be filled with 146 dental chairs staffed by 1,300 volunteer dentists, dental hygienists and other health care professionals.
The foundation says it expects to provide treatment to about 2,200 people over the two days. Patients are treated on a first-come, first-served basis.
The clinic moves from city to city each year. It was last in Hartford in 2014, when 2,295 people received more than $1.5 million worth of free cleanings, extractions,

root canals and other work.
