The Pain Clinic


I was first asked if I would be interested in providing a free “Pain Clinic” by the Lions Club. They proposed it be for residents of the county in which my practice was located. It would be for anybody that was in need of dental care, but could not afford to pay for it. I thought it was a great idea, so the plans for this clinic began.

It was advertised in the local paper and the radio for three weeks. My fantastic staff did not hesitate to volunteer their Saturday for the event, and even had the idea of having shirts made for everyone that volunteered.

We arrived at my office at 7:30am. There was a line from the front door out to the side parking lot. Some folks had been there since 5:30am to make sure they did not get left out. I was amazed! Everything ran very smoothly.  We met some wonderful people throughout the day and were able to see everyone that showed up for the clinic!


Dr. Blaire was there from Cleveland and offered his help for the busy day. His participation was invaluable!

In short, the “Pain Clinic” was a huge success and we look forward to doing it again next year.
