Local dental professionals are once again teaming up to offer their services free of charge to anyone who needs a tooth extraction during the Free Dental Day tomorrow, Feb. 23.
Those who need dental services to remove a tooth or two need only meet up at 7 a.m. tomorrow at the Lowe’s parking lot, located at 2211 N. Jackson St. Shuttles will be provided to take participants to the Breakfree Worship Center on Flowertown Road, where registration will be held.
Just as last year, dentists Joshua Puckett, Janette Gardner and John Petty are leading the program with the help of several local dental professionals who will volunteer their time.
There is once again no pre-registration process for anyone who needs the dental services provided. All registration paperwork will be provided during registration at Breakfree Worship Center.
All services are provided on a first-come, first-served basis, according to the promotional flier. Spaces are also limited, so the earlier those who need dental assistance register, the better.
According to the Tullahoma Cares Facebook page, at last year’s event 206 patients had 409 teeth removed. Total estimates of free dental care given came out to $149,000, according to the page.
