About 108 million Americans are living without dental insurance right now, and many with insurance are struggling to pay their co-pays. The dentistry team at Plaza Boulevard Dental offered a free cleaning or extraction to help local folks in need Friday morning. 

Amanda Kerby said it was a busy morning at the dentist office, and that it was their first Free Dental Day. “We realize that not everyone has insurance and not everyone has the means to get dental work done,” said Kerby. “It’s our philosophy that your overall oral health has a lot to do with your overall body health.”

More than 90 individuals received a dental service Friday.
