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.

About drjnicholson

I am a family dentist. I have been in business for 17 years. My practice is in a small rural town and my only advertising has been the yellow pages and word of mouth. I have been informed that this must change. I love what I do and have known I wanted to be a dentist since I was 4 years old. I have three boys that can break a sledge hammer. Its amazing. They are great kids! I love being part of my hometown. Seeing the people I grew up with, and the people that have watched me grow up, on a daily basis. Like having breakfast at the local diner and still getting a hug from the owner because I fixed her toothache two years ago. Or the coach of the local ball team brings in a trophy from their championship game so I can see how sponsoring their team helped. Hometown is part of who I am. I love it!

    I love this! I so wish I could’ve helped! Let me know the date for next year and maybe we can plan a trip home around it and I’d be happy to help in any way I can.
