Free dental care offered at Saturday event

If you need dental care, but can’t afford it, White River Dental on Jonathan Moore Pike will be offering free dental care to at least the first 50 patients who show up tomorrow morning.

The third annual Dentistry from the Heart event will begin with registration at 7:30 a.m., and the first patients seen at 8 a.m. Although many people will arrive earlier. Jerry Strickland, spokesman for the dental clinic, says that in previous years people have begun lining up as early as midnight. He cautions that you should dress appropriately for the weather, bring a lawn chair and make sure you have drinks or snacks, if you need them.

Strickland says the clinic will be performing limited services on a first-come first serve basis — either fillings, extractions or cleanings.

The clinic is at 2459 W. Jonathan Moore PIke. For more information go to
