City Slang: MusiCares offering free dental care to music peeps

Rather odd bit of news, this, but also rather incredible and very useful. MusiCares, the Detroit Jazz Festival and Smile Programs will be providing a dental clinic offering dental screenings, teeth cleaning, and x-rays to uninsured music professionals in need between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Saturday September 1 at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center.

They say, “These treatments will be provided free of charge to pre-screened pre-approved applicants on a first come-first served basis. Those wishing to take advantage of this service must be able to provide documentation of their work in the music industry for at least 5 years. If professional music industry experience is less than 5 years, eligibility can also be determined through credited contribution to at least 6 commercially released recordings or videos (singles). Please call MusiCares at 1-877-303-6962 to schedule a dental appointment.

We keep hearing about Republicans trying to restrict healthcare to those that can barely afford insurance, repeal Obamacare, etc. So for people to step up and do something like this is amazing. Thanks guys.
