Dentist Provides Free Dental Care For The Homeless Every Friday After Work
December 11, 2017
Dental technician Kevin Shanahan sets up his equipment outside the General Post Office in Dublin, Ireland after work every Friday evening.
He spends his free time fitting dentures for the city’s homeless and then puts in hours of work each week to create them in his lab.
“When you look at someone with no teeth they’ve lost their confidence they’ve lost a bit of dignity,” Shanahan said. “When you give someone teeth you give them a little bit of confidence and you’ll find they’ll smile more – so you’re building a person from the inside out.”
He sees about 20 people during each session, while other volunteers give free haircuts and serve hot food.
