Dozens turned out at a Valencia practice to receive free dental services ranging from fillings to extractions.
The event, held at the Valencia dental practice of Drs. Allen and Kelly Smudde, was a coordinated effort with Dentistry from the Heart, a nonprofit organization that provides no-cost dental work to adults in need.
When we said we were doing this, opening the office for free dentistry, everybody said, ‘What can we do to help?’
By the end of the day, the amount of free dental work provided totaled an estimated $16,000.
Many who turned out Friday underwent procedures such as fillings, cleanings or extractions.
“I think this is just awesome, especially for those that can’t afford dental treatment.”
