Cohen and Wolf Attorney Ken Bernhard Organizes Free Dental Services for Connecticut Children
December 14, 2009
A number of children in Fairfield County will be provided free dental service thanks to a new program organized by G. Kenneth Bernhard, Principal at Cohen and Wolf. P. C.
The program benefits children whose families are otherwise unable to afford proper dental care. Nine dentists from six towns in Connecticut have already agreed to participate in the program in December and January. Colgate is donating dental supplies for the program. Specific dates have not yet been determined.
"Children are being forced to forego dental care as a direct, yet often overlooked, consequence of this recession," said Mr. Bernhard. "Families are being forced to make difficult choices everyday. This program can make a difference, even if it cannot solve the entire problem. I am hoping it will serve as a model for communities all over Connecticut."
The volunteer dentists who have agreed to participate include:
- Dr. Phil DeJesus (Bridgeport)
- Dr. Santo A. Delallo Jr (Norwalk)
- Dr. Richard Epstein (Westport)
- Jack L. Gish, D.D.S. & Associates (Fairfield)
- Dr. Alexander Mantel (Westport)
- Dr. Jason Oberhand (Bridgeport)
- Dr. Michael Reynolds (Southport)
- Dr. Myles J. Seideman (Westport)
- Dr. David R. Stebbins (Norwalk)

Parents and guardians seeking information on how to obtain free dental care for their children should contact Barbara Butler, Human Services Director for Westport, at 203-341-1066.
