Ward Family Dental will have their event Dentistry from the Heart on Saturday morning, October 20th, in Big Spring. Here, Dr. David Ward, Owner of Ward Family Dental, told KBest News that the event is meant to offer free basic dental care to adults, 18 years or older, who may not be able to receive care any other way. He went on to say that his office will not be verifying income for patients who come to the event, but noted that all that will be required of the patients is their name, medical history and/or conditions, and medication that they may be taking.
Patients will have a choice filling, extraction, or cleaning that will be performed by Dr. Ward, his staff, and two other doctors. Here, Dr. Ward explained that other than a whole mouth cleaning, they will not be providing extensive whole-mouth treatments. The extraction and filling options will have to be focused in one area of the mouth.
Registration begins at 7:30 AM on Saturday morning, and the first 50 patients are guaranteed to be seen. Patients will be seen on a first-come, first served basis, and it should be noted that this is only for adults 18 years old or older. Patients are encouraged to arrive early, dress appropriately for the weather and to bring chairs, blankets, water, snacks, etc. as they may be outside waiting to be seen.
