Dentist Gives Homeless Free Dental Care Every Friday

 

Every Friday night, dental technician Kevin Shanahan sets up his equipment outside the General Post Office in Dublin, Ireland. He uses his free time to fit the city’s homeless population for dentures and works for hours during the week to create them in his lab.

Shanahan says he works with around 20 people in each session. And while he fixes their teeth, other volunteers offer free haircuts and serve hot meals.

"When you look at someone with no teeth they've lost their confidence they've lost a bit of dignity," Shanahan says. "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."
