By Urban Reform Staff | Jun 17, 2019


Thanks to the charity of a group of Methodist churches in Houston’s 3rdWard, those in need of dental care, but lacking the resources, were able to get it.

Boynton Chapel United Methodist Church, Trinity East United Methodist Church, Trinity United Methodist Church, and Riverside United Methodist Church teamed up and brought a free dental clinic to Emancipation Park in May.

The group raised $65,000 to bring 80 volunteers dentists and 600 dental professionals to serve 744 people.

The group noted that the average cost per procedure would have cost patients about $700 and the total amount of the no-charge care would have been around $530,000.
