Free

Volunteer dentists and dental hygienists and VCU School of Dentistry students will provide free oral care to participants competing in the 2024 Virginia Special Olympics, as well as to all others in need, at the University of Richmond on June 8. Participants will receive free cleanings, x-rays, fillings, and extractions during the event.
