For individuals experiencing homeless, dental care is often relegated to a lower priority than securing a safe place to sleep or finding a hot meal. A lack of dental care leads to missing teeth, diseased gums, and many other health concerns, not to mention a loss of confidence. The Broward Partnership’s Smiles Work! dental program provides a way for homeless adults to receive much-needed oral care at no cost.
