In an effort to provide dental work to those who can't afford it otherwise, Evansville Family Dentistry will offer a free cleaning or extraction this Friday during Free Dentistry Day.

Every time we open our mouths to eat, talk, breathe, kiss, etc., we're also opening it up to countless germs and bacteria in the air meaning it's super important to make sure our teeth are well maintained and taken care of in order to hold up to the onslaught we put them through. According to, "Untreated dental problems" can not only lead to issues of the mouth such as tooth decay, and tooth loss, but also "severe health issues stemming from periodontal disease, such as heart disease, diabetes and oral cancer."

Evansville Family Dentistry will begin offering the free services at 7:00 a.m. Friday morning at their offices at 1220 Washington Avenue. Patients will be served on a first-come, first-served basis with the first 150 patients guaranteed to be treated.
