Hi everyone, I apologize if this isn't the right place to post…

Hi everyone, I apologize if this isn't the right place to post this...but I figure it never hurts to try all options.

I'm a 4th year dental student at the University of Pittsburgh. My classmates and I are getting ready to take our licensing exam in the next few weeks and most of us are still searching for board patients. So I'm taking my search to the edge of the internet to look for people who would be willing to help some poor students (and receive free dental care!).

Eligible patients would receive a free restoration or "deep cleaning," as well as a free exam and x-rays. The exam and the x-rays would be a free screening regardless of eligibility.

You MUST be able to sit for the exam on either Thursday, February 18th or Friday, February 19th.

You may qualify if -
- You have a small cavity, or believe that you may have a small cavity.
- Have received a "deep cleaning" in the past and are due for one, or been told that you need one and have not gotten it yet.
- Been told you have "gum disease"
- Have not seen a dentist for at least a year.

If you think you (or someone you know may qualify), please respond to me here with your e-mail address or e-mail me at PittDentalExam@yahoo.com . I'll get back to you as soon as I can to set up your free exam and x-ray appointment. Please let me know ASAP, the exam is 3 weeks away and my classmates and I really, really need patients!!

Again, I'm sorry if this isn't the right forum for this post....I'm just hoping some people in the community would be able to help out. Please let me know! :)

ljmarcus at gmail... I don't think I've been to the dentist in at least a year, and I could definitely use a cleaning.

do you have to be a pitt student to qualify? I graduated last year and really need to see a dentist XP

I can't believe I missed this, but I would kill to have a free dental exam. I lost dental insurance over a year ago and seriously need to see someone, even if its just for a clean.


My teeth are a mess right now and its sad. :( But with how much visits cost with no insurance, I'm not able to do much at the moment.
