Music People In Need Get By With A Little Help From Their MusiCares Friends
Artists and music people in need don't always find themselves in catastrophic situations – sometimes a little helping hand along the way is all that's needed to make the difference between a good month and a bad month.
For people fortunate enough to live in financially stable situations, something as small as a semi-annual visit to the dentist for a simple teeth cleaning might not seem like a big deal. But for those struggling to make ends meet, that same dentist visit can mean the world..
Thanks to MusiCares' Dental Clinics initiative, partnering dental professionals in cities around the country volunteer their time and services so music people in need can receive oral health treatments and checkups that would otherwise present a large financial burden due to lacking or insufficient insurance coverage.
Here's what one music professional has to say about the aid they were able to receive from MusiCares:
"Thank you so much for the dental cleaning in Detroit. I don’t have the dough to get it done on my own so to have people looking out for me means a lot."
