Dentistry From the Heart in Jacksonville
Jacksonville’s Regional Dental Center provides free dental care to its community. TV 24 was there today for the Dentistry From the Heart celebration. The program started in Tampa and has served more than 80-thousand patients nationally, with free extractions, cleanings, and fillings. This is the first time Dr. Bruce Young and his staff has coordinated the event. Dr. Young had fellow dentists from Ft. Payne and Lineville to help. This is one way for his dental practice to show gratitude. Local Jacksonville city officials were there to lend support and offer congratulations for the worthy cause. Patients receiving care were able to give back themselves by donating blood at a blood drive that was going on. Organizers say there is another Dentistry From the Heart program set for April 12th in Ft. Payne.
