An organization that provides medical care to those without insurance received a special gift Wednesday. Delta Dental of Tennessee donated $10,000 to Remote Area Medical.
Last year they donated $25,000.
The latest gift will help fund RAM's missions this year, including the upcoming Knoxville Expedition in a few weeks.
"We're a very lean and mean operation at Remote Area Medical, and so for three or four dollars we can treat a person regardless of how much dental care they need-- maybe full mouth extractions or a lot of fillings that are necessary, so a contribution the size we got from Delta Dental and against last year is going to treat many people," said Stan Brock.
Delta Dental also gave away about 1,000 toothbrushes to be distributed to those in need.
