Dentistry of The Heart provides free dental services for people who can not afford it

Northwest Florida

PENSACOLA, Fla. (WKRG) — The annual Dentistry of The Heart is back for its second year, allowing people who can not afford dental care to take advantage of free services.

Taylor Dental is hosting the event, officials say they will serve everyone on a first come, first served basis.

Dr. Andrew Taylor says it’s hard for a lot of people in the community to afford dental care, so he closed his office to his normal patients for the day.

Nicole Pecararo lined up early this morning to get one of her teeth pulled.

“This tooth has been bad for a while and I’ve been waiting for awhile to get it done,” Pecararo said. “I’d still be in pain if it wasn’t for this.”

Dentristry of The Heart event goes from 7am to 2pm. Dr. Taylor says he would like to have the event again this time next year and serve even more people.
