AVON PARK - Chen Dental will hold a "Dentistry from the Heart" event to provide a free cleaning, filling or extraction to needy individuals from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 20.
Those interested are being asked to arrive early; registration will start at 7:30 a.m.
Free service will be provided to patients 18 years of age and older. Patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis.
People are encouraged to bring chairs, blankets and wear weather-appropriate clothing, as they may be waiting outside to be seen.
