JACKSONVILLE — The Daily Progress is reporting a couple of local dentists are opening their practice today to East Texans who normally could not afford a trip to the dentist.
Drs. Larry Folden and Bradley Westbrook of All Smiles Dental host their annual Free Friday.
Free services are available to those in need on a first come, first served basis.
All Smiles Hygiene Coordinator Karla Panuco tells the Daily Progress; “I look forward to driving up to the clinic and see all the people lined up," she said. "I just get so excited about what the day will bring and the people we’re going to help. “
The two local dentists are getting extra help this year: Dr. Michael Gardner of the Kilgore All Smiles office and Dr. Chad Silvertooth, a UT Houston Dental School classmate of Dr. Westbrook’s also will be assisting patients.
