For the fourth year in a row, Chandler Park Dental Care is hosting Smiles from the Heart to provide free dental care for those in need.
From 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, the clinic is offering free teeth cleanings, fillings or extractions on a first-come, first-served basis. There are no income requirements, but patients must be over 18 and not pregnant.
A team of eight to 10 dentists from across the country and their staffs will join the clinic’s staff and dentists, Dr. Eli Jackson and Dr. Devin Hall, to volunteer at the event.
The number of people served during Smiles from the Heart has grown each year since it began in 2011, with about 270 patients last year, scheduling coordinator Kerry Brooks said.
“Dr. Jackson wants to give back to the community and sees a lot of need for it to continue,” she said.
— Chandler Park Dental Care is located at 1857 Tucker Way. For more information about Smiles from the Heart, call 270-781-2952.
