Residents in the Weatherford community and surrounding areas will have the opportunity to receive free dental services at My Dentist on Saturday.

Dr. Anil Patel, Dr. Prabhdeep Kaur and team at My Dentist will be improving the oral health of the community as part of Free Dentistry Day, a day dedicated to providing free dental care to the growing number of Americans without dental insurance. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, approximately 108 million Americans are living without dental insurance.

“We understand that many people in our community and across the nation haven’t been to the dentist for a long period of time. Some don’t understand the importance of dental health, but more often than not, they don’t have the financial means,” said Dr. Patel. “This event is a great opportunity for us to share our time and resources with those less fortunate and give back to the community.”

“Dental health is a vital part of a person’s overall health,” said Dr. Kaur. “Through this event, we hope to educate patients on the importance of dental health and encourage them to adopt an ongoing oral care regimen.”

During Free Dentistry Day, cleanings, fillings, sealants and extractions will be provided to patients between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. at 1806 S. Main St. in Weatherford. Patients will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, call 817-594-2126 or visit www.FreeDentistryDay.org.
