GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — Last year Total Dental Care in Guntersville gave out thousands of dollars in free services and on Friday they hope to do the same.

“Free dental day is this Friday, it starts at 7 a.m., Total Dental Care in Guntersville, Alabama,” Dr. Aaron George says.

They plan to see patients from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. “Sign up is at 7 a.m., we start seeing patients at eight.”

It’s the first 100 patients on a first come first served basis. You need a valid driver’s license or ID and the age limit is 19 and up. “It’s a two for one deal. They need to bring two cans, food items, and they’ll get one dental service. Either an extraction, filling, or cleaning,” Dr. George says.

Dozens and dozens of people come out to take advantage of the event each year. Total Dental Care provides thousands of dollars in free service.
So — why do it? Well, it’s a way for them to give back.

“This community has blessed us very much and it’s just a way that we can give back to them, show our gratefulness towards the community, and there’s many people in the community who aren’t fortunate to have dental insurance or are able to pay out-of-pocket for dental services so this is our way of helping those people out,” Dr. George says.

The event is this Friday, May 15th. Total Dental Care is located at 1724 Gunter Avenue in Guntersville. The phone number is (256) 582-2248.
