Hundreds show up for free dental care
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A dental group on the Southside provided free services for hundreds of needy families across the First Coast on Saturday.
Carlson Dental Group provided free care for patients needing an extraction, filling or cleaning.
Some even camped out at the event to assure themselves a chance of a better smile.
"It all comes down to wanting to provide something greater to my community," Dr. Richard Carlson said.
In the past nine years, Dentistry From The Heart events have provided more than $8 million worth of free dentistry work to more than 45,000 people.
