DENISON, TX---Texomans were given the chance to a free dentist visit Friday morning.
Desmond Shannon is just one of many who waited in line Friday morning to receive free dental care. Tina Harvey got in line around five yesterday evening; she says it's worth it.
"When you don't have the money to pay for it, Dr. Mcananey does it for us, the extractions and the cleaning; it means a lot." said Harvey.
"It gives us a good feeling that we can use our talents to give back to the community, in one of the only ways we know how." said Mcananey.
This is the eighth time Dr. Mcananey has hosted Free Dental Day. A day these Texomans are grateful for , including Bubba Copefield.
"For this doctor to give back to Texoma, the way he's given, I mean like me, and the people here, this is very neat." said Copefield.
This was Copefield's first time here. He hoped to get two teeth pulled. Through the entire process, Copefield was looking ahead to life without his teeth that have been bothering him for so long, and when asked what he would do tomorrow?
"Number one, I'm going to give thanks to the good Lord, and number two, I'm going to drink a little bit of coffee, and say boy that's nice." said Copefield.
" I just thank God for all of that he's doing for me, i"m struggling you know, but he'll make a way for it." said Arps
A similar gratitude Shannon has for those involved today.
"Thank you so very much for what you do here." said Shannon.
