Deerhaven Family Dentistry offers annual free dental day
GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU)--If you need dental work, Wednesday is your chance to go for free.
The free event is happening at Deerhaven Family Dentistry in Traverse City.
They've been doing the Free Dental Day at their clinic for 19 years.
Dentists will perform extractions, filling and cleanings.
Last year, they did about $50,000 worth of free dentistry.
They say they do it because it's just one small thing they can do to give back to the community.
"It's just a small way to help out in the community," said Dr. Lance Beers. "This is an undeserved area and there's a lot of people that don't have benefits and dental insurance, and there's a lot of people that come back year after year after year, so we're able to give a lot of good quality dental care for absolutely free."
Free Dental Day runs Wednesday at the Deerhaven Family Dentistry from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
It's on a first come first serve basis, but anyone is welcome and it is completely free.
