Photos: Dentist sinks his teeth into community service

Dr. Spencer Updike of South Temple Dental conducts a free dental screening on Derick Balser in Salt Lake City on Monday. Updike offered the screenings to anyone, whether or not they had insurance. In addition to giving back to the community, Updike hopes the free screening day will bring awareness to different health issues that can be caused by neglected teeth. Not only can neglected dental care be detrimental to oral care, but it can also cause further complications, such as heart problems.
