Many individuals arrive at Evergreen after years of dental neglect. They are often in pain and in dire need of common dental procedures to restore their oral health.
But their insurance only covers extractions. No root canal, no crown, no bridge, no saving the tooth. Just pulling the tooth.
Unfortunately, this is normal for most adults with developmental disabilities who are covered by Medicaid. Medicaid provides very limited dental care.
This #GivingTuesday you can provide the dental care that so many of the individuals served by Evergreen desperately need.
For several years, Evergreen has sought donations for its Client Needs Fund, which covers essential needs, like dental care. Evergreen spent over $40,000 last year from the Client Needs Fund on these critical needs for the people we serve.
But the need grows every year – especially for dental care.
Will you help us with a gift to our Client Needs Fund? Your contribution will be put to work right away, easing the pain and improving the confidence of the individuals served by Evergreen.
