Dentists to offer free work on Saturday

A Columbus area dentist’s office will be offering some free dental procedures this weekend on a first-come first-serve basis.

Dr. Chris Miller with Renaissance Dental Group says people can have a tooth pulled, a teeth cleaning or a filling replaced. The first appointments will be at 8 a.m. Saturday and they are meant for those who can’t afford to have dental work done.

This is the third year for the project, and people have started lining up as early as 4:30 a.m. for the free dental work, Miller says. He believes that shows how needed the service is.

The Renaissance Dental Group offices are on Middle Road behind Rural King. You should wear clothing appropriate for the weather. Miller says that he, and other volunteer dentists, will see 65 patients.
