Smyrna, TN–People in the Smyrna community will have the opportunity to receive either one free extraction or one free cleaning at Village Crest Family Dental located at 315 Sam Ridley Parkway West on Friday, October 4.
Dr. Elizabeth Clay, Dr. Anne Knox and the team at Village Crest Family Dental will be improving the oral health of needy citizens as part of Free Dentistry Day, a day dedicated providing dental care to the growing number of Americans without dental insurance.
“Now more than ever, there are people in Smyrna who need dental services but have no means to afford them—whether they’re out of a job, or just don’t have dental insurance,” said Dr. Clay. “This event is a great opportunity for us to share our time and resources with those less fortunate and give back to the community we serve.”
“Our team is committed to lifetime dental care because good oral health is integral to overall health,” said Dr. Knox. “By participating in this program, our goal is to engage patients and encourage them to adopt an ongoing oral care program and a lifelong regimen of preventative care.”
Either one free extraction or cleaning will be given on Friday, October 4, between 8 am–3 pm at 315 Sam Ridley Parkway West in Smyrna. For more information, call 615-220-3440 or visit www.freedentistryday.org. Patients will be accepted on a first come first served basis.
One third of Americans are living without dental insurance and current economic conditions leave little room to afford dental procedures. Without events like Free Dentistry Day, dental care simply isn’t an option for many uninsured people.
