The Charlottesville-Albemarle Dental society is teaming up with MACAA and the Charlottesville free clinic to launch a new community dental program.
Representatives from both organizations say this plan will utilize area dentists so that low income adults, who don't have health insurance, can receive dental care.
"this has been a long standing, pressing need. Dental care, access to dental care, is something that's been identified locally and nationally" said Erika Viccellio, the Charlottesville Free Clinic.
More than 30 local dentists have already signed up to see patients in the program.
