LINDEN — Linden Dentist Dr. Anatoly Bensianoff is offering a significant discount on dental services through the end of September in order to assist people who need dental care. He will also donate a portion of the proceeds to his community food pantry.
Bensianoff is looking to assist the people in his community who have lost their dental coverage due to job loss by offering dental services at a fraction of his normal rate. For $50, patients will receive oral examinations, x-rays and dental cleanings, and half of the proceeds will go to the Charity Food Bank.
Bensianoff was inspired to produce this community effort after reading a report in the New York Times about how an increasing number of Americans are going hungry.
He notes that many of these people have also lost their dental coverage and are, therefore, going without preventative dental care, which puts them in danger of tooth decay and gum disease that contributes to problems associated with diabetes, liver and heart problems in addition to an increased risk of premature and stillborn babies in pregnant women.
“I want to do my part to ensure that Americans stay healthy and to help those who are going hungry by sponsoring this food drive for the residents of our community,” explains Bensianoff.

“In a troubled economy that affects many Americans, the spirit of giving to others is needed more than ever. The more people who know about this effort, the more needy families can receive aid,” Bensianoff concludes.
