MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Arrow Dental Center offered free dental work Friday morning for their annual "Dentistry from the Heart" event.
Staff worked for free to provide everything from cleanings to extractions.
They said it's a chance to "pay it forward," giving the opportunity to get dental work done for people who might otherwise not be able to afford it.
"It's just things like that people don't realize how serious an infection can get," said Arrow Dental receptionist Allie Hebert. "So we want to keep your teeth healthy and we want to get that decay out. And decay doesn't get rid of itself."
She said the event is held every year, usually around the month of October.
