Dentist Opens Doors To Provide Free Dental Care

An East Texas dentist is opening his clinic to offer free services for those that need it.   Dr. Roy Smith of Tyler calls Saturday's one day event Dentistry With A Heart. You'll want to get there early because in the past there have been lines.  He says they will probably only be able to help about 150 people.

"Mainly it's pain relief, so there will be a lot of extractions, some people will need fillings, broken front teeth," said Dr. Roy Smith, Smith Dental Care. "We may be able to do that. We'll have several hygienists that will be able to clean teeth, of course we will take necessary x-rays."   The doors open 7:30 a.m. Saturday morning. The Smith Dental Care Clinic is located on New Copeland Road in Tyler. The free service will only be available for those 16 years of age and up.
