DENISON, TX -- Free smiles, that's what one local dentist is planning to hand out to dozens of young adults in-need on Monday.
Dentists say more than 1 million Americans lack dental care. Dr. Stephen McAnaney is hoping to chip away at the problem here in Texoma. With the help of the non-profit - Dentistry from the Heart, he's planning a free day of dental care Monday.
Dr. McAnaney along with volunteers will be handing out fillings, extractions and teeth cleanings at Lake Texoma Dental Care in Denison.
The free day of dentistry begins tomorrow at 8 a.m. Organizers say they plan to treat as many people in-need as possible before 7 p.m.
Patients must be at least 18 years old to take part.
